These women stand tough

Char­ac­ters’ re­silience is high point in tricky ‘The Con­duct of Life,’ a clas­sic taught more often than it’s staged.

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - CHARLES Mc­NULTY THE­ATER CRITIC

Hero Theatre or­ga­nized a fes­ti­val last year in cel­e­bra­tion of Cuban Amer­i­can play­wright María Irene Fornés, a key fig­ure in the off-off-Broad­way the­ater move­ment who has had an in­flu­ence on con­tem­po­rary Amer­i­can drama that far ex­ceeds her mod­est fame.

At­ten­dees of the fes­ti­val had the op­por­tu­nity to vote on which play should re­ceive a full pro­duc­tion. “The Con­duct of Life,” one of Fornés’ com­pact mas­ter­pieces, was se­lected. The play is be­ing pre­sented at the Rosen­thal The­ater at In­ner-City Arts
