Los empeños de una casa

On Saturday, February 28, Spanish 102 honors students attended GALA Theatre’s production of Los empeños de una casa. The seventeenth-century play was written – in verse! – by Mexican nun, poet and feminist Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. The students enjoyed the music, humor and the twist that GALA gave the original comedy by setting it in 1940s Mexico.
