The ghost of a woman who died while crossing the border haunts the unwilling heroine Juanita, the wife of a U.S. Border Patrolman.

Woman on Fire is a re-imagining of Sophocles’ Antigone set along the Arizona/Mexico border. The ghost of a woman who died while crossing the border haunts the unwilling heroine Juanita, the wife of a U.S. Border Patrolman. Juanita finds herself torn between the law of man and a higher law when she must decide whether or not to put her husband’s career and their marriage at risk in order to give the restless spirit the proper burial it demands.

This production is a world premiere and part of the Latina/o Theatre Commons’ El Fuego Initiative. Presented in partnership with Camino Real Productions.
