FREE ADMISSION - All donations go the artist!

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 that labeled you a whore (or a lesbian!) regardless of whether or not seeking independence was a personal choice or economic necessity.

This performance is part of LATINxARTS a four-week long program at Hairpin Arts Center featuring exclusively latino/a/x artists. September 15th – October 15th features “Eye Level” an art exhibition curated by JGV/WAR featuring installations by Andrea Peralas and Jose Resendiz, as well as free workshops, discussions, and performances. All events are free to the public – and all donations made at the door or online will go to the artists involved!
