This Sunday, April 26, my new play, La Princesa will take the boards for the first time as a reading, directed by José Zayas, at Jack. The play is based on this historical life of Juana of Austria, a Spanish regent from the mid 16th century, who was also, secretly, the only woman Jesuit. Though her life is often regarded as being overshadowed by Philip II (remember the Spanish Armada?), this play dramatizes Golden Age scandal with contemporary zeal.
Hope to see you at the theatre!
