The House of the Spirits

Michael Moran

A new play by Caridad Svich | Based on a novel by Isabel Allende | Directed by Michael Moran

Based on Isabel Allende's best-selling novel, Caridad Svich's <em>The House of the Spirits</em> follows three generations of the Trueba family-their loves, their ambitions, their spiritual quests, and their place in the post-colonial social and political turmoil embroiling their South American country. This darkly poetic adaptation incorporates magical realism to weave the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate.

May 2, 8pm to 10pm, Zellerbach Playhouse
