In this story, the Prieto family struggles to maintain appearances in a society that measures worth based on material possessions. A brilliant and hilarious dissection of family life and the fragility of love, the title translates literally to ‘With You, Bread and Onion,’ (not unlike ‘through thick and thin’).
Thursdays through Sundays February 11 – March 5 at El Centro Milagro, 525 SE Stark St. in Spanish with English supertitles. The play was written in 1962 and had its Cuban premiere in 1964. The bilingual version, Rice and Beans, was produced in the United States by INTAR in 1979.
