THE RIVER BRIDE

By MARISELA TREVIÑO ORTA

WINNER of the 2013 National Latino Playwriting Award

“Full of seductiveness and rhythm … Wonderful, moving, riveting!”ARIZONA DAILY STAR

“Hauntingly poetic … Enchanting … Intoxicating!” – TUCSONSTAGES.COM

“A dream, a visual poem, a type of dance … Fantastic and seductive and poetic!”TUCSON WEEKLY

Once upon a time, in a fishing village along the Amazon, there lived two sisters struggling to find their happily-ever-after. Helena is dreading her sister, Belmira’s, wedding. The groom, Duarte, should have been hers! And she knows that her sister only wants to escape their sleepy Brazilian town for an exciting new life in the city. But three days before the wedding, fishermen pull a mysterious stranger out of the river – a man with no past who offers both sisters an alluring, possibly dangerous future. Brazilian folklore and lyric storytelling blend into a heartrending tale of true love, regret, transformation, and the struggle to stay true to your family while staying true to yourself.

The approximate running time for The River Bride is 1 hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission.
