Winner! 2021 Will Glickman Award for Best Play! 

Playwright Ricardo Pérez González’s wickedly funny tragedy "DON'T EAT THE MANGOS" portrays life on his home island of Puerto Rico with compassion and humor through the saga of three sisters living just outside San Juan

As a hurricane approaches the beautiful island, secrets and ugly truths are revealed that cause the sisters to wrestle with how to stay true to their familia and homeland – and seek a satisfying revenge. 

Obie Award winner David Mendizábal returns from the acclaimed world premiere production to direct.
