by Round-About Players
In this piece of gay historical fiction, a playwright explores the life and writing of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. As the worlds volley between that of Sor Juana and the contemporary world of the playwright, she guides the audience to consider the possibility of queerness, mental illness, and questions of faith in the context of Mexico City in the 1600s. With the help of Purpose, Desire, Shame, and Religion, we see glimpses of Sor Juana's daily life, as well as the poetry of a lesbian creating a puzzle of answers to the question: Who, or what, was Juana's greatest love?
