Nelly Cuellar-Garcia’s piece affords a creative challenge and affords all the opportunity to dig deep into research. This unique piece gives Shakespeare’s female characters the voice we never hear in their original pieces. Clever and well-written it is an empowering piece that gives female actors the chance to step into their own moment and shine.

Having a cast of all girls and finding the perfect script to suit them was a challenge until reading "Desdemona in the Afterlife." Nelly-Cuellar Garcia wrote about characters my girls knew from literature, but brought them full circle after their tragic deaths. The song was haunting and the lines gave me girls the power they needed to become an advancing play.
