About: The Asphalt Kiss

Obsession, Beauty, Murder, Betrayal: The perfect tabloid story.

As a pedestrian hit by a bus lies dying on a Rio street, a passer-by, Arandir, stops to cradle him in his arms. He kisses him on the lips – a last request from the dying man as a parting gesture of human solidarity.

The scene is witnessed by an unscrupulous reporter who turns the compassionate act into salacious front-page news. Tabloid journalism spins into overdrive, and Arandir’s life is torn apart as his friends and family slowly turn against him.

Following the success of StoneCrabs production of Rodrigues’ work: Waltz No. 6, Our Lady of The Drowned, All Nudity Shall Be Punished and After Doroteia, this production marks the centennial of Brazilian playwright Rodrigues’ birth.
