    In 1898 Cuba on the eve of the Spanish-American War, spirited widow Adela runs a pharmacy, indifferent to the mounting conflict around her. But when the rebellion comes home to Havana, she must choose between loyalty to country or to family. By turns funny, steamy, and political, this powerful new drama from Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez (Sonia Flew) asks whether freedom is something we all want. Huntington Associate Producer M. Bevin O’Gara directs.

    Rich Girl
    The Lyric Stage Company of Boston
    140 Clarendon Street
    Boston, MA
    7:30 PM

    A rich girl, her richer mother, and a starving artist boyfriend - what could go wrong? When sheltered Claudine meets starving artist Henry, she falls head over heels. But her mother, a tough-talking celebrity financial guru, has her doubts: Is Henry everything her daughter deserves or is he only after her money? Rich Girl, a modern day take on the classic play and film The Heiress, is a clever new comedy about women and their relationships with men, mothers, and money – and not necessarily in that order.

    The Wholehearted 
    ArtsEmerson
    Paramount Center
    559 Washington Street
    Boston, MA
    7:30 PM

    Utilizing the forces of text, song and physicality, The Wholehearted dives into a narrative fraught with the violence of love, the sexuality of sports and the truth behind the stories we tell ourselves. Collaborative partners and Drama Desk nominees Deborah Stein and Suli Holum tackle the story of a fictive female boxer based on the biographies of iconic women in athletic history. Unlike any solo theatrical experience, Stein and Holum deliver a unique multimedia feast, questioning the line between personal fantasy and factual reality.
