LA LLORONA

by Gabby Wolfe

OCT 28 - NOV 19

at the Capitol hill arts workshop

 

"You'd better behave, or La Llorona will get you!"

The weeping woman of Latin American myth and legend is more than just a warning for misbehaving youths. This ghost story takes us on a horrifying journey back in time to meet La Llorona in the flesh and to watch as the tragic young woman becomes a thing of nightmares. La Llorona's origin story weaves us through three generations of women and their relationship with family, love, and colonization. 

 

This performance will be the premiere of a new play.
