Comedy / 3m, 3f / Areas La Gringa is about a young woman's search for her identity. Maria Elena Garcia goes to visit her family in Puerto Rico during the Christmas holidays and arrives with plans to connect with her homeland. Although this is her first trip to Puerto Rico, she has had an intense love for the island and even majored in Puerto Rican Studies in college. Once Maria is in Puerto Rico, she realizes that Puerto Rico does not welcome her with open arms. The majority of the Puerto Ricans on the island consider her an American - a gringa -- and Maria considers this a betrayal. If she's a Puerto Rican in the United States and an American in Puerto Rico - Maria concludes that she is nobody everywhere. Her uncle, Manolo, spiritually teaches her that identity isn't based on superficial and external definitions, but rather is an essence that she has had all along in her heart. This play is published in a bilingual edition, if you are applying for licensing rights please state which version (English or Spanish) you wish to produce. "90 minutes of laughter...Carmen Rivera has captured the spirit of the Puerto Rican experience."- D.J.R. Bruckner, The New York Times "Carmen Rivera's deft playwriting delivers Maria from her personality crisis with spiritual transcendence."- Ed Morales, The Village Voice "Carmen Rivera has suceeded in giving voice to the cultural search of Puerto Ricans raised in the Tower of Babel."- Juan Mendez, El Diario - La Presa
