Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Informative, Gracious

See it if you have an interest in Dominican history and enjoy well performed non-linear work - beautifully costumed and directed.

Don't see it if you do not speak Spanish and do not want to read the poorly coordinated translations as they flash by on a small screen in front of you

“Explores the Dominican Republic’s sometimes overlooked, yet most influential founding mothers...It’s the women who really make their mark in this play...Alvarez is a true literary historian through her writing, tying the Dominican Republic’s past to the present...Plenty of humor, sassiness, and tender moments for you to enjoy...If there’s anything that we can learn from Alvarez and the women in this play, it’s that the past, and not just the future, is female.”
