The Mirabal sisters of the Dominican Republic were elegant and wealthy. Using the code name “butterflies,” they inspired resistance cells against the dictatorial regime of General Rafael Trujillo until their brutal murder. This memory play is a riveting account of courage
Written by Caridad Svich and based on the novel by Julia Álvarez.

El 25 de noviembre de 1960, encontraron los cuerpos de tres hermanas en la costa de la República Dominicana. La prensa oficial calificó el hecho como accidente. No se mencionaba que las muchachas eran férreas oponentes a la dictadura del General Trujillo. No era necesario... Todo el mundo conocía a las Mariposas.
