Set in 1991, during the Pan­American Games in Havana and while the Russians are pulling out of Cuba, Two Sisters and a Piano takes place during a tumultuous time in Cuba’s history. The play portrays two sisters, Maria Celia, a novelist, and Sofia, a pianist, serving time under house arrest. Passion infiltrates politics when a lieutenant assigned to their case becomes infatuated with Maria Celia, whose literature he has been reading.

With the Soviet Union crumbling, Cuba was redoubling its efforts to enforce its harsh social and political ideology, cracking down hard on artists and writers thought to be inciting dissent. Maria Celia and Sofia were once the toast of the artistic and intellectual crowd in Havana but were imprisoned for writing in support of Perestroika.
