Wolf at the Door is a new play by Marisela Treviño Orta, directed by Rebecca Martinez. Milagro Theatre is producing it as part of the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere along with three other theatre companies around the country.
In Orta’s story, Isadora stands up to her abusive husband, Séptimo, as he forces the very pregnant Yolot to stay against her will. While Séptimo makes plans for the baby, Isadora and Yolot devise a plan of their own. A pack of wolves closes in on the hacienda, and Isadora must decide the price she’ll pay for her own freedom.
The play is part of a cycle of fairy tales Orta is writing inspired by Latino folklore and mythology.
