Exiled from Chile to the strange land of Reagan-era Wisconsin, two young sisters must create imaginary worlds to uncover the story of their family’s past. Traveling through fantasies of glaciers, talking bears and Nazi-fighting revolutionaries, Pinkolandia is a play about growing up – because sometimes, when you lose your country, you have to invent your own. Presented in English with a sprinkling of Spanish.
A rolling premiere in collaboration with New York’s Lark Play Development Center, INTAR Theatre in New York, Austin’s Salvage Vanguard Theater, and Two River Theatre in New Jersey.
16th Street’s production of Pinkolandia is supported in part by The Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation.
Lark Play Development Center’s Launching New Plays into the Repertoire Initiative is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
