Ten strangers are invited to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a past of evil deeds they have committed which they are unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. Each of the guests has been marked for murder as retribution for past deeds. As the weather becomes stormy and the group is cut off from the mainland, the action begins and one by one they are eliminated in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

About the Performance
Thornton Wilder’s iconic, Pulitzer Prize winning play is re-imagined for Miami in the 21st century. The characters at the center of this beloved drama, set in small town New England, will speak Spanish and Creole, in translations by Miami-bred playwrights Nilo Cruz and Jeff Augustin that mark the first time the Wilder Estate has allowed the text of the play to be altered. By adding new layers of language and culture, Our Town expands to encompass everyone in a quintessential American – and human – story.
