This coming-of-age play follows Lena, a 12-year-old tomboy sent to live with her strict, superstitious grandmother in the mountains of Puerto Rico after her parents’ divorce. She spends her days playing basketball with the local kids and unraveling the mystery of the poisoned mango tree on her grandmother’s property. As Lena uncovers clues to the decades-old local myth, she comes to realize the truth cuts deeper than she could ever know. Under The Mango Tree employs magical realism to expertly explore family, history, and adolescence.
