Based on a Mexican folktale, this lyrical, evocative award-winning stage play tells the story of three young women at the turn of the millennium, all of them haunted by La Llorona, "The Weeping Woman." Esme dreams of becoming a doctor, Monica searches for love among a string of feckless men and Andrea, poet and dreamer, makes a fateful choice with dire consequences.
