The Way She Spoke  
The Greenhouse Theater Center The Way She Spoke
 
When an actress enters an empty warehouse to read for a role in a new play about the missing and murdered women of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, she embarks on an expedition through the broken roads of a city with far more questions than answers. With thousands of women disappearing every year, who is responsible for these crimes? The Way She Spoke: A Docu-mythologia is a daring solo-performance piece pulling from hundreds of interviews collected down a rabbit hole of drug cartels, ex-convicts, unsavory reporters and resilient women. Isaac Gomez's honest, thought-provoking production makes its debut at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center. When The Way She Spoke hits the stage, you'll be asked: "What lies in the shadows of telling a story that isn't yours?"
