MUST END JUNE 4
Amid gentrifying construction, street protests and a sweltering summer in Flatbush, the five Abellard sisters take refuge in their family home. Simmering in the losses of their father and their neighborhood, they clash over how to contend with the legacy of their Haitian parents in a city that is no longer theirs.
Inspired by Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba with a breathtaking immediacy, playwright Diane Exavier brings to life a powerful ensemble of women to create this sensual and entrancing portrait of a family at a crossroads.

The New Group is updating our public safety protocols in line with other cultural organizations in the city and in accordance with The Pershing Square Signature Center. We will no longer require masks for audiences attending performances this season. Masking will be strongly encouraged but not required in both the theater and lobby.
For audience members who would prefer to be in a masked audience, we have designated “masks required” performances throughout the run. These performance dates are noted as such on the tickets page.
Acceptable masks include cloth masks with 2-3 layers of fabric, surgical masks, KN95, and N95 masks. Masks should only be removed when actively eating or drinking. The safety of our audiences is one of The New Group’s top priorities and we will continue to update our policies as necessary.
