In the Time of the Butterflies Play Opens Tonight

By Caridad Svich & Julia Alvarez

Directed by Jose Zayas

“In The Time of the Butterflies” is the story of the courageous Mirabal sisters (Patria, Minerva y María Teresa) from the Dominican Republic. The sisters inspired resistance cells throughout the country against the dictatorial regime of Gen. Rafael Leónidas Trujillo. The ‘butterflies’, their secret code name, were brutally murdered by the regime in 1960.

Based on Julia Álvarez’s popular novel, the martyred butterflies come to vibrant life in a warm, brilliant, and dramatic production by the talented duo – playwright Caridad Svich and director José Zayas- that brought us the critically acclaimed production of Isabel Allende’s “The House of the Spirits” in 2009.
