About the Show Less...

Six characters, one house and no privacy; Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz's comedy is reminiscent of a Spanish Golden Age Big Brother. Read More >

House Of DesiresA brother, a sister and four others – like a Spanish Golden Age Big Brother – all reside in one house. A web of love is weaved among the sextet, but with everyone struggling for a little bit of privacy, is anyone sure who really loves who?

The delightful romantic comedy is written by Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, the Sister of the Order of St. Jerome who was one of the few female playwrights of the era.
