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