Alley Theatre presents Torera
Bullfighting in Yucatán, Mexico is a world nearly exclusive to men - yet for Elena Ramírez, it is her life's ambition. With the help of her best friend, a matador's son, Elena begins secretly training to compete with the greatest. But when she discovers that her seemingly inherent talent can beat even the most accomplished toreros, this young woman must choose between accepting society's limits or breaking boundaries.
Torera is a world premiere play written by a stunning new voice in the American theatre, Monet Hurst-Mendoza. It tells a poignant story about becoming your truest self by proudly stepping into the ring. The play was developed in the 2022 Alley All New Festival.
