Theater Performance: La Sosa Sisters
After their Mami passes away, Manita and Rosita deal with it in very different ways. Manita feels haunted by their mother, while Rosita seems to be living her best life. Until Mami’s younger sister, Miri, with her fresh new Green Card, arrives in NYC ready to start a new life while still tightly hanging on to the past. In the midst of burying their Mami, Rosita, and Manita have to deal with the family secrets that they dig up. La Sosa Sisters deals with what it means to belong to a family that is separated by space and time.
