Abstract: Foxy: Tales of An Urban Zorra is a play written for the stage, which explores what it means to be a Latina woman in the world today. The story looks at themes of the mother-daughter relationship, coming of age and Latin American mythology to explore the stereotypes that make up the Latina identity. Synopsis: Valeria Quintana is turning fifteen today, but she has a big secret. Her mother, Dolores, is throwing her the most elaborate and most expensive quineanera ever. Her father, Jorge, is hiding in a broom closet waiting to dance a final waltz with his daughter. And like fairy godmothers, The Chola, The Virgin, and The Latina Lover convene at the quinceanera to help Valeria become the woman she was always meant to be.
