INTAR presents the world premiere of Jose Rivera's take on Jean Genet's classic, reset on Vieques Island on the eve of the U.S. military's 1941 invasion. More…
Two maids, sisters Monique and Yvette, dream of liberating the island—and themselves—from La Doña, mistress of the largest sugar plantation on Vieques. Rituals are enacted, roles are reversed, identities become fluid, bombs fall, poison is consumed, genders collide, and a psycho-sexual drama is unleashed as the trio struggles with the meaning of power, sisterhood, and freedom. Adapted by Oscar-nominated writer Jose Rivera ('The Motorcycle Diaries').
