What: A series of vignettes are woven into this tale of a young Chicana as she faces the harsh reality of her neighborhood while holding on to the dream of what she will someday become. This professionally-staged production from New York's American Place Theatre features a verbatim theatrical adaptation of Sandra Cisneros' critically-acclaimed book, "The House on Mango Street." The production explores important social themes such as racism, sexism, estrangement, loss and the concept of home. In the author's words, the book conveys "the shame of being poor, of being female, of being not quite good enough." Join the artist for a post-show discussion.
