‘House of Desires’ at SUNY

LOCH SHELDRAKE, NY — The SUNY Sullivan Theater Program will present performances of “House of Desires” (“Los Empeños de una Casa”), from February 22 to March 4, Thursdays through Sundays. Performances will be held in the Seelig Theater on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Written by Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz and translated by Dr. Catherine Boyle, “House of Desires” is directed by Jessica López-Barkl, associate professor of theater and speech at SUNY Sullivan. The production will be super-titled into Spanish for Spanish speakers. The cast is comprised of SUNY Sullivan students, staff, faculty and community members.

This romantic comedy, written during the 17th century by the celebrated playwright, scholar and nun Juana Inez de la Cruz, involves a brother and sister caught in a web of love with four others. With all six under one roof, mayhem ensues as each struggles to be alone with his or her lover as the audience tries to work out who really loves whom.

This is the second play in SUNY Sullivan’s 2017-18 season, and continues to explore the question, “What is American identity?”

The suggested donation for admission is $10.For more information about the performance, tickets, or for information about accessible seating services, email
