We Happy Few Productions presents

La Llorona

A new play by Gabby Wolfe

You better behave, or La Llorona will get you.

The weeping woman of Latin American myth and legend is more than just a warning for misbehaving youths. This ghost story takes us on a horrifying journey back in time to meet La Llorona in the flesh and to watch as the tragic young woman becomes a thing of nightmares. La Llorona’s origin story weaves us through three generations of women and their relationship with family, love, and colonization.

October 28th & 29th @ 7:30pm

October 31st @ 7:30pm (Opening Night)

November 3rd-5th @ 7:30pm, November 10th-12th @ 7:30pm, November 17th-19th @ 7:30pm
