Lady Alhambra: A Play with Song and Dance is a musical play in development by Gabriela Castillo-Miranda. The story centers on Nila, an untrained medium of the Oyana Order who is forced to partner with trickster spirit Juracan to fix a realm exchange portal damaged during an unauthorized transcendence ritual. All the while, Nila must sing and dance at The House of Mambo Cabaret and reevaluate her unconventional relationship with the dysfunctional siblings who are running it.
Inspired by Caribbean history, culture, and mysticism, this play will be an adaptation of Lady Alhambra, a 15-minute solo show written and performed by the author as part of her MFA showcase, Where the Roots Take Hold, hosted by the Center of Performance Experiment in February 2018 (Columbia, SC).
