Marisela Treviño Orta’s 2014 play, inspired in part by Brazilian folklore, concerns sisters Helena (Flavia Pallozzi) and Belmira (Sofia Tew). Belmira is on the eve of her wedding to Duarte (Johnathan Nieves), the man Helena believes should have been hers, when a mysterious stranger (Nate Santana, pictured) is pulled out of the river and draws the attentions of both sisters. Rinska Carrasco-Prestinary directs Halcyon Theatre’s Chicago premiere.
