In the Time of the Butterflies is the story of the courageous Mirabal sisters Patria, Minerva, and María Teresa (known as "the butterflies") who in the late 50s inspired a revolutionary movement in the Dominican Republic against the dictatorial regime of Gen. Rafael Leónidas Trujillo. Based on Julia Álvarez's popular novel, adapted to the stage by playwright Caridad Svich, and directed by José Zayas, the highly acclaimed and awarded cast of Repertorio Español delivers to Western New York an "artistic success, a major dramatic accomplishment" (hispanicnewyorkproject.com).
