Directed by Ron Russell
Main Season · Peet’s Theatre
May 3–June 17, 2018
West Coast premiere

Virtuoso performer Nilaja Sun’s award-winning hit No Child… captivated Berkeley Rep audiences in 2008. Now she brings us a new critically acclaimed solo show about Evelyn, a single mother who fights for the survival of her family in the face of a threatening hurricane. In an astonishing 90 minutes, Sun portrays three generations of a Puerto Rican family and the vibrant characters of New York’s Lower East Side in a story of tribulation, perseverance, and redemption that also “glows with humor” (New York Times). Don’t miss this incredible, transformative trip to Pike St.

We do not expect this show to include an intermission. We’ll update this information, and add running time, once we have confirmation.
