In The Time of The Butterflies

7:30 pm, Mar 08, 2013 | $15; $12 seniors/students
 
During Rafael Trujillo‚Äôs dictatorship in the Dominican Republic (arguably one of the bloodiest reigns ever) three sisters became martyrs for the uprising that led to the ruler‚Äôs overthrow. The story of Patria, Minerva and Mar√≠a Teresa Mirabal‚ÄĒfrom their well-educated upbringing to their revolutionary aspirations‚ÄĒhas been well documented, and now, a play by Caridad Svich brings their plight to the stage. Based on the historical novel by Julia √Ālvarez, the stage version of In the Time of the Butterflies is bound for New York, but lucky Santa Feans can catch a production workshop here. Proceeds from the Saturday performance benefit the Esperanza Shelter and, just as importantly, the play itself takes a relevant stand for nonviolent peace revolutions.
