Sor Juana and Other Plays

Estela Portillo Trambley


These plays explore different facets of the human experience: the dilemma of the mojado, human vulnerabilities in the search for a way to overcome death, the alienation of the Hispanic family amidst economic hardships and personal crises, and the existential conflicts of Mexico’s most celebrated feminist thinker, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

“A worthwhile attempt to broaden the scope of the total Chicano experience.” —Latin American Theatre Review
