Southwest Shakespeare Presents: House of Desires
By Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz  |  Translated by Catherine Boyle

In this delightful comedy of intrigue, two couples strive to chart their own destiny, but only when the time is precisely right. A wild ride of mistaken identities and thwarted ambitions, complete with wily servants and witless nobles.

Written in the 1600s by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, considered the first female playwright in Mexico and the Americas, House of Desires examines the role of women in a time when they were subject to strict moral codes in society.
