Little Girls Don’t Do That
By Liz Coronado Castillo
Come walk the line between reality and fiction through this autobiographical work. Little Girls Don’t Do That dives into the hard hitting issues of coming out and coming of age of the main character in a pursuit to claim her womanhood by surviving her past. A young Chicana begins her journey of accepting her sexuality while overcoming her childhood memories of being molested. The play balances life between comedy and tragedy, while questioning the stereotypical frameworks of religion, culture, gender, and sexuality.
Time and Place: The play takes place on a stage, a church, a room with a table, and a playground. It takes place in the present.
Cast of Characters:
· KRIS, Chicana in her mid twenties.
· EDDIE, four years older than KRIS, a family friend
· GRACE, early fifties, KRIS’ mother
· JUAN, mid fifties, KRIS’ father
Set: The play’s action requires a flexible set that can accommodate fluid action on a stage, in a church, a house, and a playground. It does not need to be an extravagant set.
