We're Mericans

Four stories itching to be told, featuring a handful of characters eager to be known. We're Mericans is a one person show adapted by Mando Alvarado (NSCA '01, Kenan Fellow '02) from Latino literary phenomenon Sandra Cisneros' book, Woman Hollering Creek, brings to life the world of South Texas—a land that straddles the old world and the new. Ms. Cisneros first won notice of the literary community with The House on Mango Street, her collection of vignettes told from the perspective of a young Mexican-American girl in Chicago. She was deemed by the New York Times Book Review to be, “not only a gifted writer but an absolutely essential one”, lauding her ability to “create unforgettable characters we want to lift off the page and hang out with for a little while.
