The Immaculate Conception (1996)

The Immaculate Conception is a play that explores Virgin, Mother, Whore mythology and stereotypes. Body types and image topics were developed in a workshop: What does a Virgin look like?  A Whore?  A Latina?  Do we get these ideas from magazines?  Television?  Men? Each other? Is there a God? A Goddess? And why are all Latinas expected to know how to salsa dance?
