Catalina de Erauso

written by Elizabeth Doss

directed by Dustin Wills 


 

Opening Friday Sept. 15th!

3 weekends until Sept. 30th.

Thursdays, Fridays, & Saturdays



This wickedly funny and wildly fantastical work chronicles the true story of a 17th Century nun who, at the tender age of 14, breaks out of the convent, makes her way across the globe disguised as a man, and ultimately becomes the New World’s first and fiercest Conquistadora. In the breadth of one evening, we watch as Catalina transforms from a trapped young girl to a self-made man, until the brutality of colonization remakes her into a monster.

This world premiere is written by paper chairs’ co-artistic director and resident playwright Elizabeth Doss, features scenic design by co-artistic director Lisa Laratta, and welcomes back co-founder Dustin Wills from New York City to direct.

Catalina is the inaugural event of our 2017-2018 residency at Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems (CMPBS), an internationally-renowned sustainable design and architecture firm in East Austin, located 15 minutes from downtown, just east of MLK/FM 696 and 183.
