Our setting is 16th century Spain. The Inquisition has expelled the Jews or forced them to convert. Teresa of Avila is igniting the imagination of the country as the nun who receives messages directly from God. A young Jewish converso appears on Teresa’s doorstep, petitioning to become a novice in her care. Their relationship explores the feminine archetypes of the Amazon and the Medial Woman, and the foundations of psyche’s movement toward wholeness: Kabbalah, and Christian rapture, in an oppressive yet luminous time.

This play will be performed at the International Jungian Congress in Copenhagen in August, 2013. The playwright is accepting donations to help fund this journey. A donation box will be at the theatre entrance.
