In the drylands of northeast Brazil, a kingdom of sand and thirst, Maria and Etevaldo fall in love across a fence. After living together as husband and wife for 22 years, the sanctity of their union gets invaded by the gossip and gibes of a conservative community. Four storytellers breathe life into this tale of love and loss, desire and death, ignorance and illumination. Based on real events, Brazilian playwright Newton Moreno’s stunning narrative shows that love can bloom even in the harshest climate. Directed & newly translated by Danilo Gambini, featuring Raghad Almakhlouf, Irene Hamilton, Kate Kenworthy & Miss Kitty.
“By turns lyrical, funny, surprising, tragic, Agreste (Drylands) achieves folkloric power.” - New Haven Review
