Three ways of looking at Delmira Agustini, the first female Latin American poet to write erotic poems, who was murdered by her ex-husband in 1914. A work performed by six singing actors in which the songs, complemented by a short film, are part of the story. The flesh and its weaknesses occupy both foreground and background, inviting the audience to elaborate further.

Gripped by collective hysteria, the town's teenage girls, with Abigail at the head, become the prosecutors in an unjust and cruel trial. Intolerance, absolute power and ignorance make it easy for a spurned young woman to become the driving force behind a ruthless witch hunt of innocents, giving rise to treason, fear, greed and human misery.

Pre- and post-delivery rituals and care among Yucatan women, the use of herbs and the popular practices designed to aid in childbirth.

El Greco’s complex and forceful personality is tested at a decisive juncture. The artist's evaluation of “The Martyrdom of St. Maurice”, a third century painting being considered by Philip II for placement in the basilica at El Escorial in1577, could make El Greco the favorite court painter. The theme is freedom of choice and life in the face of established power.

Performed in total darkness, the piece proffers criticism of such contemporary problems as human automation, labor routines and bureaucratic tedium. An irritable and autocratic boss runs a tight ship of an office near a harbor. When he steps out, the office "gopher," inspired by the sounds of the ships, relates his adventures as a sailor, leading his co-workers to dream of a different life, free themselves of prejudices and seek the desert island.

In the first half of the 20th century, no incident was more representative of both the United States' controversial immigration policy and the Cuban government's staggering apathy than the island nation's refusal in 1939 to allow 937 passengers on the MS St. Louis, most of them Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany, to land in Havana. Most of the refugees failed to find safe harbor and were forced to return to the terrifying Europe of Hitler's time. This play was inspired by that historical event.

One Christmas night, the Del Solar family comes together after many years.

What no one expects is that the father has a revelation in store that will set off a true crisis in the Solar system.
