La bruja monja (2003)

This play deals with the catholic and evangelic abuse, specially pertaining to the communities. Indigenous women consecrate themselves or marry God, because they do not want to continue suffering. Sometimes, in their childhood, they have suffered with desperation. That is why they join a seminar or convent: to be able to escape, but they end up with an unpleasant surprise, a reality totally different to the relief that they expected to finally enjoy.
