Focusing on the initial formation of our domestic violence and sexual assault programs, this bilingual play takes traditional Mexican folklore characters, like La Llorona, and refashions their roles in order to craft a narrative with cultural resonance. In this light, the play forces us to question the way in which the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault are oftentimes normalized as a facet of culture. As we begin to question and gain consciousness, there is a hope that we can begin to deconstruct these toxic ideologies and grow anew. In varying ways, this year’s theme is around Hope: the hope that a new life is possible, the hope that we can grow, and the hope that we can begin again.

For a mature audience. $10 Suggested donation at the door. Doors open at 6PM.
