PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This a legend that is popular in the Southwest and Mexico. It is a cautionary tale that parents tell their children to prevent them from wandering off at night. It is the story of a beautiful woman who is betrayed by a rich man leaving her with two children. In a fit of rage, she drowns her children. She instantly regrets her horrific act and searches for them wailing and crying in grief. It is said that she looks for them every night. Parents warn their children to stay at home or La Llorona will seize them. This one-act play is suitable for middle school and perhaps ELD high school students. It is probably too intense for elementary students, though Latino students will most likely be familiar with the folktale. Perfect for Halloween.
