Book It Repertory Theatre is offering Spanish-captioned performances of “In The Time Of The Butterflies” this month. As Spanish is the second-most-spoken language in the country, Book It Repertory Theatre has committed to offering performances to an audience that might not otherwise be able to attend live theater in their preferred language.

The play is Caridad Svich’s adaptation of a novel by Julia Alvarez and is directed by Ana María Campoy. It is set in the Dominican Republic and focuses on the Mirabel sisters during President Trujillo’s authoritarian reign. This production runs until Oct. 16. Spanish captioned performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Oct 1 and 2 p.m. on Oct. 15. Visit book-it.org to purchase tickets.
