Ever since my parents told me the Llorona story, I’ve been fascinated with the scary tale. My original play, “Tears for Llorona” is a retelling of the traditional Hispanic story of the creature who searches the night for her lost children but I added a modern touch to link old and new. The play was performed Nov. 1 at the Hispanic Cultural Center, thanks to a grant from the Alexa Rose Foundation and support of the center. Thanks to Radio Boise, the radio play version was aired Nov. 2.
Cast members include Abi Mondragon, Maria Theresa Alvarado, Diana Rivera, Antonio Hernandez, Graciela Fonseca, Elizabeth Mondragon, Gabrielle Marcantonio, Jessica Mondragon, Mary Morris and Raymond Fonseca.
