El Gallo Bravo is the former comandante of a Guatemalan penal colony in the 1980’s, who, with the help of a CIA buddy, fled Guatemala 30 years ago, and now runs El Gallo Bravo To Go, a chicken-to-go place in Corpus Christi. The play takes place on the night the granddaughter of two of El Gallo Bravo’s victims shows up unexpectedly, and El Gallo Bravo, confronted by the inescapability of history, shows us how easy it is for evil to justify and live with itself.
