From the original production, directed by the playwright and Adelina Anthony at The Pigott Theater, Stanford University. May 2005. VIVIS as MEDEA and Shayok Misha Chowdhury as CHAC-MOOL. Set by Celia Herrera Rodríguez.

In "The Hungry Woman," an apocalyptic play written at the end of the millennium, Moraga uses mythology and an intimate realism to describe the embattled position of Chicanos and Chicanas, not only in the United States but in relation to one another. Drawing from the Greek Medea and the Mexican myth of La Llorona, she portrays a woman gone mad in the struggle between her longing for another woman and for the Indian nation denied to her.
