Sor Juana & the Chambered Nautilus, an original 80-minute multimedia theatre production written and performed by Angeles Romero, brings to life Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a 17th Century Mexican nun known for her voracious drive for knowledge and an exceptional genius as a writer.

The play dramatizes the existential conversation Sor Juana has with herself as she attempts to build a self-defense argument against charges of transgression brought by the Inquisition. After an arduous night of self examination she chooses to confront her own shortcomings and ultimately defend not only her own interest in worldly learning, but also the broad rights of women to an education and an unfettered life of the mind.
