    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Machuca. In 1973 Socialist Chile, the friendship between two adolescents--the poor Pedro Machuca and wealthy Gonzalo Infante--is tested during a tense military coup. Democratically-elected and controversial President Salvador Allende's vision of bridging the gap between the rich and poor is threatened when economic differences cause rabid fervor amongst the citizens. Raising questions about how class and politics endanger the lives of students, Machuca examines how political turmoil is only resolved at high costs.
