Putas. Whores. Loose women- This new play by Dr. Liza Ann Acosta bridges our mothers’ and grandmothers’ traditions with dreams for our daughters of tomorrow. Three generations of Puerto Rican divorcées and a happily unmarried professional grapple with conflicting relationships to gender, race, cultural norms, and family obligations as they take us from nunneries, bars, and brothels in the US and Puerto Rico. 

PUTAS! is grounded by one woman’s obsessive need to find out all the secrets of her complicated family history with the use of her best friend: ancestry.com. Join Acosta in exploring the paradox of becoming an independent woman in a society thatlabeled you a whore (or a lesbian!) regardless of whether or not seeking independence was a personal choice or economic necessity.
