An alluring ghost, family secrets and political turmoil combine in José Rivera's Adoration of the Old Woman, a searing coming-of-age tale that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. In the play, a rebellious New Jersey teen -- who speaks no Spanish -- moves in with her 105-year-old great grandmother in rural Puerto Rico. Amidst cultural, generational and linguistic barriers, the two women find a strange intersection in their love lives -- the younger facing complications of two new suitors while the older is literally haunted by the ghost of her husband's mistress. Don't miss Rivera's enchanting drama when it takes the stage of The Batey Urbano.
This show’s running time is two hours, with one 10-minute intermission.
