Mestiza Power! is a play that moves between snippets of conversations in the market place to a series of monologues told by a domestic worker, a street vendor wearing Ray Bans, and a hierbatera. Concepion Leon Mora introduces us to the inherently complicated world of the modern day Mestiza through a lens that is at once thought-provoking and humorous. The first draft of this translation was developed in a 10-day workshop at the Lark Play Development Center as part of their US/Mexico Playwrights Exchange Program. Staged reading directed by Daniel Jaquez.
