First developmental stage reading of Broken Words: Full story, partly off book, an intimate and powerful theater experience! Written and directed by Alejandra Ramos Riera.

RSVP NOW – Seating is limited! Suggested donation $7

Julia, a young woman living in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, decides not to speak again. Encouraged by her neighbors, her mother commits Julia to a psychiatric institution.

Wrestling with the ins and outs of colonialism, mental illness, and institutionalization, Julia tries to mend episodes from her past while dealing with her relationship with her mother.

As the story progresses, madness becomes a puzzle, and its pieces can only be set into place by Julia, just like the broken words flowing in her chattered mind.

Broken Words was developed in part with support from Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater and its Step Up Artists In Residence initiative, established with support from The New York Community Trust.
