TIETA by Franko Figueiredo - StoneCrabs 2015

A millionaire, returns to her hometown, after an absence of many years. Merely on the promise of her millions, she shortly turns what has been a depressed area into a boomtown. But there is a condition attached to her charity, which the townsfolk realize only after they have become enmeshed in her vengeful plot: murder.

A dark comic play and a scathing indictment of the power of greed. Tieta is a theatre adaptation of the Brazilian novel ‘Tieta do Agreste’ by Nobel prize nominee Jorge Amado.
