The story of eight women who kept the faith.

From the playwright of one of Two River’s most adored shows, Guadalupe in the Guest Room, comes a beautiful and moving new play, The Women of Padilla.

Linked by their marriages to eight brothers and their shared last name, “Padilla,” eight very different sisters-in-law connect through the power of food, faith, laughter and each other while their husbands are away at war. Meet Mari, the one who quietly leads; Carmen, the one who drinks; Marta, the one with faith; Alejandra, the one who’s expecting; and all the rest of The Women of Padilla.

Inspired by the heightened lyricism of playwright and poet Federico García Lorca, this new play shows there is always a way—even through the hardest of times—to set our love free.
