"A Smoke Behind the Rope" is a thought-provoking play that draws inspiration from actual events and characters, shedding light on the ongoing execution of political activists. While the play does not depict these events precisely or directly represent specific individuals, it seeks to bring attention to the dark and oppressive realities faced by political dissidents under the dictatorial authorities.
It revolves around the conversations between a boy and a girl who are spending their final night in prison and are scheduled to be hanged the following day, delving into the unique circumstances they find themselves in during the last hours of their lives.
