Five short plays that explore Latin-American mythology for all ages and races ...

Maria ~ An old man falls helplessly in love with a young girl, and they both seek the aid of a witch to help them come closer to the other persons age!

The Baker's Neighbor ~ A greedy baker takes his neighbor's nostrils to court for "filling up on the smells of his cakes and breads"

La Llorona ~ Ghost story that tells of one Spanish nobleman who loves and has children by a foreigner. Culture customs will not permit him to marry her without banishment, so he marries another

Desperate, and thinking that the nobleman would marry her if they had not had children, she drowns them. He rebukes her, sending her into madness, and finally to her death, where she relentlessly haunts him

Her brother attempts to revenge her death by challenging the skilled swordsman to a duel with a tragic end

Repaying Good with Evil ~ A conniving Alligator convinces a Ranchero to help him out of a dried river bed and subsequently the Alligator repays him by promising to eat him

Confused, the Ranchero asks why good must be repaid with evil. The Alligator agrees to ask the next three who come along if this is truly the custom

The Ox and the Burro agree; it doesn't look good for the Ranchero. But the Coyote needs to have their scene replayed before deciding. In doing so, he spares the Ranchero's life

The Rabbit Who Wanted to Be a Man ~ All Sr Conejo, the rabbit, wanted was to be a farmer! He certainly did not expect so much trouble!
