"The Mask of The Jaguar King is a religious mystery pitting the politics of imperialism against the desires of the heart," press notes state. "In 1933, a battle of the sexes breaks out when an American archaeologist finds herself stranded at the site of a Mayan Temple with a dangerous Hispanic revolutionary intent on stealing priceless ancient artifacts. As they slowly unmask each other's dark personal secrets it remains unclear, who is the real outlaw? To whom does history belong? And does the value of preserving the past justify the injustices of the present?"
The event also features original music by Peter Calo and lighting by Dennis Parichy.
