“Two Sisters and a Piano” Premieres at the Colony Theatre on Thursday, January 25, 2024
Written and directed by Nilo Cruz, the Pulitzer Prize-Winning Playwright of Anna in the Tropics.
Two Sisters and a Piano is a gripping play set amidst the Pan-American Games and the Russians’ departure from Cuba. Witness the enthralling cat-and-mouse game between novelist Maria Celia and a charismatic military officer, whose infatuation blurs the lines between passion and politics. Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz weaves an authentic tale of oppression, the human spirit, and the intertwining fates of two sisters awaiting freedom in a world of shifting global politics.
Set in 1991, during the Pan American Games in Havana while the Russians are pulling out of Cuba, this play portrays two sisters, Maria Celia, a novelist, and Sofia, a pianist, serving time under house arrest. Passion infiltrates politics when a lieutenant assigned to their case becomes infatuated with Maria Celia, whose literature he has been reading.
