The House of the Spirits, the haunting best-selling novel by Isabel Allende, comes to the stage in this fascinating adaptation, showing the struggles of a landed, privileged family in a South American nation as four generations of women confront a powerful patriarch and dictatorship in the 20th century. "Caridad didn't try to follow the plot. She recreated the atmosphere and spirit of the book. She has a very original, very special kind of mind. It just goes wild and I admire that. She's not restricted by anything," said Allende. The House of Spirits is recommended for mature audiences only.
