I am so inspired by the rehearsals for my upcoming play, In The Time of the Butterflies/ En El Tiempo De Las Mariposas with Stageworks Theatre!
Based on the novel by Julia Alvarez as adapted by Caridad Svich
Directed: Karla Hartley and Jorge Acosta.
Based on Julia Alvarez’s popular novel, In The Time of the Butterflies is a riveting, fictionalized account of the courageous Mirabal sisters. The sisters inspired resistance cells throughout the Dominican Republic against the dictatorial regime of Gen. Rafael Trujillo. As retaliation, the butterflies, their secret code name, were brutally murdered by the regime in 1960.
It was adapted for the stage by Caridad Svich.
Performances are April 13,-29th For tickets go here.
