History Comes Alive with These Plays 

"My students seemed bored by Civil Rights.  I took out their textbook and put the images and events into a play to show them the natural drama and that it was regular people who made the difference in the Civil Rights Movement." - The playwright Tom Quinn 


"Not one student recognized that “soldadera” were actual real historical figures of the Mexican Revolution."  -The playwright Nelly E Cuellar-Garcia


Las Soldaderas

This historic one-act drama follows the lives of an intrepid band of female guerilla fighters who choose to pick up rifles to defend the poor and disenfranchised from the clutches of the corrupt Mexican government and their soldiers.
