Orale mi gente! Your Tia Tenopia here welcoming you to another great week of Latinopia.com! Our video this week is an excerpt from a great new American play written by Theresa Chavez, Rose Portillo and Alan Pulner and directed by Theresa Chavez. This play imagines a dream-like encounter between seventeenth century nun and poet Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and a realtor and her pool contractor husband in contemporary Phoenix, Arizona. Science fiction? Fantasy? Or metaphoric drama? This part one of a two-parter. The play is currently on stage at the Pasadena Playhouse. For more info check out: http:www.aboutprd.org/ot/properties/
