Simply Maria, or the American Dream (excerpts) - When she was a teen, Josefina López was greatly moved by a play she saw. Inspired to become a playwright, she wrote a play about a young Hispanic girl's struggle to find her own sense of self and freedom. The girl does this by challenging the traditional part of her heritage and traveling a road that helps her discover her own truth and direction. Lessons give steps to make up stories, write dialogue and teach how to develop characters in a play or story. Themes: Transformation, Freedom & Oppression and The Human Family.
