not good

I don't see the point of this. It's like a diary entry from a bitter, unpleasant woman who has a big hang up about being Mexican, and who is a racist. It isn't interesting, or well written or in any way engaging. Lots of people don't like their jobs. Lots of people don't have a lot of money. Lots of people don't have a perfect life - I don't see how being "chicana" is connected. It is simply incidental to her complaining, aside from her racism. The prose is poor and the "story" not at all engaging, even a little. It was work to stay focused. At no point does the listener/reader care about the character, or even hate her - just shallow contempt and boredom. And it feels too personal, but not in a good way - like a train of thought journal entry that really should have stayed private because it's not good enough to be shared. I am very surprised this writer has won any acclaim - though I think there has to be some political correctness going on as it is just very poor stuff. I am REALLY surprised this is from LA Theatre Works, as they usually put out pretty solid stuff.
