In the Time of the Butterflies

A play by Caridad Svich Based on the novel by Julia Alvarez

"Julia Alvarez' novel is as lovely as a butterfly at rest, and as moving as one in flight.” ~ Burlington Free Press. Experience the spirit, passions and courageous acts of the Mirabal sisters - "The Butterflies" - as they inspired a fight for freedom in the Dominican Republic. Their legacy led to the UN creating the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
