Spanning more than 30 years in the lives of four sisters, the story begins with their adult lives in the U.S. and ends with their childhood in war-torn Dominican Republic. The play deals with the hardships of immigration, painting a vivid picture of the struggle to assimilate, the sense of displacement, and the confusion of identity. A beautiful portrait of a close-knit, hard-working family that acknowledges the importance of both laughter and loss. A book club favorite, bursting with music, compassion, and vivacity.
