Set in 2002 under the specter of the 9/11 terror attacks, 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.  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.

Written by award-winning playwright Marisela Treviño Orta, native of Lockhart, Texas, WOMAN ON FIRE resonates with themes that are timely and relevant.  

A TheatreXpress student production.
