The legend of poet Juana Inés de la Cruz represents the quintessential story of the struggling artist who toils in obscurity. She was a beautiful intellectual from a small town who defended the study of science and equality of women in 17th-century Mexico. Though today she is remembered for her contributions, in her time she was virtually unknown. Karen Zacarias' play delivers the story of the poet's life in crisp drama.
