ARTWORK BY RICH HILLIARD

In the apocalyptic play The Hungry Woman, feminist author and Chicano playwright Cherríe Moraga uses mythology and intimate realism to describe the embattled position of Chicanos and Chicanas, not only in the United States but in relation to one another. Drawing from the Greek Medea and the Mexican myth of La Llorona, Moraga portrays a woman gone mad in the struggle between her longing for another woman and the Indian nation denied to her. Features students from JMU’s School of Theatre and Dance.
