The story follows "three sisters on their way to supper who are split up across time and space."
The piece will feature the text of playwrights Yunior Garcia Aguilera, Rotimi Babatunde, Marcos Barbosa, Tanya Barfield and Gbolahan Obisesan, and musicians Sola Akingbola and Michael Henry will accompany the production, which will include choreography by Danza Contemporanea de Cuba's George Cespedes.
