Women of Ciudad Juárez Press

Women of Ciudad Juárez was written by Mexican film star turned documentary playwright and filmmaker, Cristina Michaus. The play serves as "a powerful tribute to the hundreds of women who were raped, tortured and murdered during two decades of terror in the Mexican industrial border city that lies south of El Paso, Texas." This production, the first English translation of the show, began touring in 2014. Teatro Travieso/Troublemaker Theatre was founded in 2012 under the direction of Jimmy Noriega with students from The College of Wooster. The company "seeks to cause the best kind of trouble – the type that creates witnesses and fights for those who seek justice and equality in their communities." Women of Ciudad Juárez is the group’s second production and continues to tour internationally.
