Post performance talk-back with Cherrie Moraga

Digging Up the Dirt takes place, as Moraga writes, “Inside The Poet’s head, somewhere in the fragmented Chicano nation of Aztl├ín.” Here, as in most Moraga plays, the playwright uses the imagined landscape of the Southwest to poignantly explore those censored questions that continue to impact Chicana lives. And, as in most Moraga plays, such depictions give all of us pause –regardless of race or gender or sexuality. This is especially the case in “Digging Up the Dirt” where the plot thematically interweaves two murder stories.
