Repertorio Español performs a new play by the Dominican-American playwright Marco Antonio Rodríguez based on Julia Alvarez’s epic fictional novel of the real-life Salomé Ureña. Born in the 1850s, in a time of intense political repression and turmoil, Salomé’s fervent patriotic poems turned her, at seventeen, into a national icon in the Dominican Republic. “In the Name of Salomé” is equally the story of Salomé’s daughter, Camila, who grows up in exile, in the shadow of her mother’s legend. In Spanish with English surtitles.
