The Palacios Sisters Radionovela
June 4 @ 12:00 am - June 30 @ 11:59 pm$10
June 4 – 30, 2021 – audio on demand
In this radionovela featuring voices of some of the Bay Area’s most revered actors, Cristina Garcia flash forwards Chekhov’s Three Sisters nearly a hundred years into the future – to Miami, 1985. It’s the height of the drug wars and the city is hit with an explosion of cocaine-related violence, a growing AIDS epidemic, and the fallout from 100,000 Marielitos.
Enter the artistic, educated, culturally refined Palacios sisters – Olga, Maria, and Irinita, recently arrived from Havana. Along with their classical pianist brother, Andres, the Palacios sisters struggle to navigate the fast and furious new rules of Miami, all the while plagued with nostalgia for the island they left behind.
Written by acclaimed author Cristina Garcia, with direction by Adrian Alea, and featuring original music by Omar Sosa and Greg Landau.
$10 – $20 sliding scale.
