The way she spoke (Paperback)
A haunting and theatrical one-woman play, The Way She Spoke travels from a New York stage to the treacherous streets of Ju rez, Mexico, where thousands of women have been murdered in an epidemic of violence that has yet to stop. Written by Isaac G mez based on his intimate interviews, the play is a raw and riveting exploration of responsibility: one playwright's journey to give voice to a city of women silenced by violence, fear and a world that has turned a deaf ear to their stories.
"An act of bearing witness... an aching, outraged work of vigil, protest and inquiry." - The New York Times
"Isaac Gomez has drawn from interviews with real women to expose just how terrifying life in Ju rez has become. It is riveting theater... Gomez's script is a brilliant, tragic book of the dead." - New York Theatre Guide
"At first, the terrific solo show The Way She Spoke seems simple... Gomez's play picks its way carefully among genres: It's half memoir, half fiction, half documentary, half memorial. That's too many halves-there's too much play here. But that's because there is no appropriate response other than surfeit of anguish, of pity, of rage." - TimeOut NY
