American Southwest Theatre Company opens its season with “A Grim Latino Fairy Tail” by Marisela Trevino Orta. Directed by Wil Kilroy. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
In a fishing village along the Amazon two sisters struggle 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. 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.
