In the Time of the Butterflies goes on stage

An adaptation of the Julia Alvarez novel “In the Time of the Butterfly” heads the 2010-11 season that Repertorio Español, New York’s main Spanish-language theater company, is presenting. The production will bring together the dramatist Caridad Svich and the director José Zayas, the same team that collaborated on a well-received version of Isabel Allende’s “House of the Spirits” in 2009. The play brings to light the tragic story of the Mirabal sisters from the Dominican Republic, who confronted and plotted against Gen. Rafael Trujillo’s dictatorial and oppressive regime. The story is told from the point of view of Dedé Mirabal, who was the only sister to survive the dictator’s wrath. Presented in Spanish with live simultaneous English translation.
