Many theaters across America brag about presenting world premieres, but few can rival the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, which this week opens a new work for the 68th time.

Up-and-coming writer Martín Zimmerman’s new play is about mourning and loss in a Latin American village recovering from a brutal civil war.

When a plague threatens the town’s children, a reclusive doctor discovers he has a magical ability to heal. But it’s complicated.

KJ Sanchez, one of the Playhouse’s new artistic associates, herself a playwright, is directing the show in the Thompson Shelterhouse.

Tuesday-Sunday. Through Oct. 27. $30-$75. Thompson Shelterhouse, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, 962 Mount Adams Circle, Mount Adams, 513-421-3888,
