About En el Tiempo de las Mariposas / In the Time of the Butterflies

Following their acclaimed productions of Fabio Rubiano Orjuela's Labio de Liebre (The Lip of the Hare) in 2017 and Gabriel Calderón's Uz, El Pueblo in 2016 andMi Muñequita in 2015, Teatro Publico de Cleveland-CPT's resident Latin American theatre ensemble-returns to the stage with a fourth Spanish language production. Based on the award-winning, nationally best-selling novel, In the Time of the Butterflies, this true life story reveals the beauty of courage, sisterhood, and community resistance to injustice. In the dictatorial regime of General Trujillo in the Dominican Republic, four sisters-code-named "the butterflies"-rise up against all odds, sacrificing everything to bring equality and democracy to their country.

En el Tiempo de las Mariposas / In the Time of the Butterflies will be performed in Spanish, with English subtitles thanks to the generous support of The City of Cleveland's Cable Television Minority Arts and Education Fund.

According to En el Tiempo de las Mariposas / In the Time of the Butterflies Producer and CPT Executive Artistic Director, Raymond Bobgan: "Teatro Publico de Cleveland (TPC) has gone through an incredibly rapid evolution as a company. In just over four years, TPC has grown from this inexperienced, mostly amateur group to an ensemble working at a level of quality that I think stands up to any of the other professional theatres in Cleveland. And in this time in which we see a rise of fascistic viewpoints, it is important to remember the journeys of so many countries who went down that road before, and we can be inspired by the resistance and sacrifice people have made."
