Emiliano Zapata’s Women

@ National Museum of Mexican Art

1852 W 19th St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, June 2nd, from 7:30PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, June 3rd

The image of Emiliano Zapata is built (or destroyed) via a series of feminine voices that assuredly knew him: the midwife who attended his birth, his mother, his sister and one of his lovers; all of them painting an intimate image of “The Atilla of the South”. Emiliano´s Women is a play with funny, heartbroken, overshadowed, blood-stained voices; old voices that may seem current because no revolution has achieved justice for women.

The play will be presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
