A new play with songs by Caridad Svich
Based on the novel by Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende’s best-selling and critically acclaimed debut novel comes to vivid life in this powerful and poetic stage adaptation. In an unnamed South American country, a young woman endures a grueling imprisonment for unspecified political reasons. Her name is Alba and she is the youngest of three generations of women from the Trueba family. In her isolation and fear, she bears witness to dream-like memories of a family history shaped by the volatile patriarch, Esteban. She wonders what the lives of her mother and grandmother can offer her now and asks how her plight can change the hard and harsh Esteban.
