Watch a preview of the show.
At odds over their mother's will, grown twins Julia and Simon embark on a journey backwards in time to unravel her deepest secrets. In the process, they discover a completely different mother from the one they thought they knew. Exploring the human potential for hate, revenge, and destruction--as well as consolation, love, and forgiveness--award-winning Lebanese Canadian playwright Wajdi Mouawad's powerful story was turned into an Academy Award-nominated Best Foreign Language Film in 2011. In the hands of renowned Mexican theater company Tapioca Inn, Incendios reveals itself as both an epic and intimate family drama.
