Memory of Silence in the Land of Eternal Spring: a new play by Linda Maria Girón.
Set in the land of eternal spring, in a town where the ghosts sing with the living, roses grow larger than cattle and nearby villages have gone missing; young Mari’s quest to find her father’s ghost becomes a desperate fight to restore her aunt’s fading memory.
Together, la familia Noguera must face the boundaries of love when tested by the realities of life—aging, war and illness.
