The Playhouse San Antonio brings a lesser-known play penned by Pulitzer Prize winner Nilo Cruz to its Cellar Theater this month. Cruz’s Two Sisters
and a Piano
is set in his native Cuba in 1991, under Castro’s regime just after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Unlike blockbusters such as Les
Misérables
, political turmoil is not at the forefront of this drama. Instead, the play focuses on sisters Maria and Sofia as they adjust to a sentence of permanent house arrest, exploring the subtleties of how life and love are affected by a suffocating regime. Omar Leos directs Maria Ibarra, Ailyn Duran, Victor Trevino and Paul Ramos in The Playhouse’s production. $12-$30, 8pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, The Playhouse, 800 W. Ashby Pl., (210) 733-7258, theplayhousesa.org. — Kelly Merka Nelson
