About the Play

Brothers, Sisters, Santos is a collection of three short plays about generations of immigrant siblings — the things that connect them, the things that tear them apart. These three plays can be produced together or individually.

The Plays

Mentirosa | 3W, 1 M

Originally produced as a ten-minute play titled The Disappearing Rose Trick, in sisters Melina, Graciela, and Rosa recount a few stories about growing up. Melina is the smart one, Graciela is the pretty one, and Rosa is the one who lies. Their lives change when a wolf comes to town.

Doctors Without Borders | 2 M

Whatever Marco did, Teo would do. Teo became a doctor because Marco became a doctor. In the kitchen of their childhood, under the eyes of saints, the brothers replay what should have been a conversation, an argument, something. This is a play about what goes between the lines, how we earn our place in heaven, how earn our place on earth.

Between Brother and Sister  |  1 M, 1W

Martin and Briana recount a car trip when they were younger — and tell the story of the brother they lost.
