House of Desires
by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
This 17th-century romantic farce is a wild tale of confusion and mistaken identities complete with wily servants and groping suitors. House of Desires examines the idea of free will for women at a time when a woman’s role was subject to a strict moral code. Written by one of the few female playwrights of the age, a poet, nun and major baroque literary figure of Mexico. Translated by Catherine Boyle.
