La Cuarterona: Drama Original En Tres Actos by Alejandro Tapia y Rivera
Dec 06, Dusty rated it really liked it. Finished this play a few weeks ago but held off writing a review due to Thanksgiving and general poor time management. White bookish dude wants to marry bookish slave woman he grew up with who is “black” but not overly so.
White dude’s mama is widowed and looking to ensure her retirement by marrying her son into a wealthy white family. Bookish slave woman must now decide whether to reveal her feelings for her master, knowing they could never be happy, or forever hold her peace.
Misunderstandings, broken feelings, and deceptions ensure.
