BAJO LOS HÁBITOS DE RESIGNACIÓN by Rosarina Liriano
A story of forbidden love between a nun and a young college student. The love and devotion the two women profess to each other is strongly challenged by the questioning of the church and the judgement of a traditional Dominican family.
IN SPANISH.

EL GOS by Pablo García Gámez
Sebastián "Gos" deja la ciudad del Ávila buscando otras posibilidades. Atrás deja la ciudad y a Chúo. En el nuevo espacio, "Gos" ve el mundo desde otra perspectiva. La obra es una inovadora exploración de la inmigración ilegal desde el punto de vista de un protagonista gay. IN SPANISH.

RASGOS ASIÁTICOS by Virginia Grise
A touching series of conversations across time, between four generations of women who are searching for an understanding of hope, love, and home despite a history of violence and abuse. A corageous portrayal of love between women, questioning how to let go of binding gender roles and what it means to be a Mexican woman. IN ENGLISH.
