The RHS Drama program continues its 2022/2023 season with this 17th century comedy by the internationally renowned Mexican writer Juana Inés de la Cruz. This bilingual staged reading tells the story of 11 lovers and sworn enemies who find themselves together in the home of Doña Ana, caught in a web of betrayal, unrequited passion, secrets, sword fights, and disguises. Everyone’s honor is at stake and someone keeps turning the lights off.
This 80-minute play is suitable for audiences 12 and up and features performances, costumes, scenery, props, and lighting and sound design created by students of Riverbank High School and Adelante High School.
