Coming to The Carrie Hamilton Theatre at the Pasadena Playhouse this Winter!

Poetry, science, and history spiral out of control as a contemporary Phoenix realtor, her pool contractor husband, and the famed 17th C. poet Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz meet in a multi-layered dreamscape. Sor Juana, considered the first great Latin American poet, is joined by her confessor who hopes to silence her pen and scientific inquiries. Reality bends as they all confront the nature of their identities and seek a new beginning.

First Responder Tales #4 : our legacy, our future

Join us for our final First Responder Tales symposium! This event will include duets between a cultural first responder Elder and an Emerging Artist of their choice. Each will share their seminal work and allow us to listen in as they respond to each other’s compelling questions. All participants will then join in conversations about their current relationship to, and future of, the field.


Stay tuned to read more about the next symposium and in the meantime, join the conversation now on the First Responder Tales Blog!



The Chicano Legacy Project empowers all youth and
enlightens audiences by drawing on the rich and inspiring history of the Chicano movement
of the 1960s and 70s, a period of dramatic civil rights activity that continues to affect all Americans.
It is built around our Evangeline production and its related educational programs,
and the Young Theaterworks’ Through the Ages program.

About Productions’ Young Theaterworks programs offer innovative programming that
introduces youth to the importance of writing and the power of communication
through artistic expression, facilitated dialogue and live performance.
