    Brutally honest about the challenges of early parenthood. Also hilarious and absurd and delightful.

    I recall seeing an early snippet of this play at Ohio University and what unfolded was bold, unexpected, hilarious and one of the most unforgettable experiences I've ever had in the theatre. I was pleased to see the rest of the story of Maggie, the breast-pumping pilot, as well as the exploration of Magdalena's same roller coaster journey of motherhood intertwining together. I'm not a mother, but I connected with this play on the difficult path to finally let go of the feminine standards set by society, allowing women to embrace their own lives.

    Motherhood can be a hard transition, but this surprised me when I had my first child because mostly what we’re shown are euphoric women happy crying while staring at their babies. I wish I’d had a play like this to read or see to know that all those conflicting feelings weren’t wrong, and also that I wasn’t alone. This play is dark, funny, and strange. Luzárraga handles time, space, and language in a very creative way, and a huge hell yes to more breastfeeding on stage!

    LA MUJER BARBUDA is all the things you want in a play - smart, funny, moving, surprising, at once new and familiar. Luzarraga has created memorable, well-drawn characters and two worlds that are completely distinct and clear, and it's beautiful to experience them transforming in and out of each other in such a seamless, cascading way. I loved this play.

    I had the pleasure of seeing the production of LA MUJER BARBUDA at Ohio University. This play brilliantly intertwines two distinct time periods and characters, who on the surface seem to have nothing to do with one another. But as their stories unfold, it becomes aparent just how far we haven't come in the last four hundred years. Infused with humor and heart this play thoroughly engaged audience members at Ohio University. I hope to see a professional production of it soon.
