Playwrights’ Reading Room: “La Llorona”

Monday, June 6th, 2016 at 7:00 pm

masksCecelia Raker of Playwrights’ Reading Room (PRR) will present her original play, “La Llorona.” When three girls from very different worlds get thrown together on a school project about a local urban legend, they don’t bargain for a murderess ghost to start messing with their lives. La Llorona, with her irreverent, haunting advice, seems intent on steering them away from her fate. Or is she luring them to a watery demise?

To sign up for this dramatic event, written, directed, and read by PRR, please call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, email norprograms@minlib.net, or stop by the library Reference or Information Desk.
