Summary
"The Hungry Woman, grounded in the Medea legend and Mesoamerican mythology, reinvents the story of Aztlan in the "near future," visualizing a world in which the Chicano/a nation has won a living space but betrayed the principle of equality of the fighters for the revolution. Passionate, earthy, and tragic, full of heroism and villainy, the play calls on a new audience to deal with an imagined political reality." "The Heart of the Earth is a feminist revisioning of the Quiche Maya Popul Vuh story, with lessons for modernity about the evils of racial doctrine, patriarchy, and greed. Moraga's improbable heroes, vatos locos returned from the deadly underworld, reveal that the real power of creation was always closer to home. The script, a collaboration with puppet maker Ralph Lee, was created for the premiere production of the play at the Public Theatre in New York in 1994."--BOOK JACKET
