The Drama Program of the College of Staten Island presents Trouble at Home

Trouble at Home is adapted from a comedy written by Sor Juana Inez de La Cruz, Los Empeños de Una Casa. Sor Juana was a proto-feminist Mexican writer and nun from the 1600s who wrote in the style of the Spanish Golden Age. Our production has been translated and adapted by Dominican director and Drama Program senior Anadina Saladino who also directs.

Taking place in contemporary Dominican Republic, Trouble at Home is a laugh-out-loud slapstick farce, with improbable moments that serve as a momentary relief from the stressful times we are living in while addressing issues of misogyny, classism, racism, colorism, homophobia, xenophobia, and ageism.

Presenttions will take place on Thursday and Friday, Dec. 9 and 10 at 7:00pm. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door before the show.

***Cleared4 passes masks, and social distancing are required.

If you do not have a Cleared4 pass, but are fully vaccinated and wish to see the show, please call Lavinia Solano from 10:00am to noon on weekdays and she will begin the process. This must be done by Wednesday, Dec. 1.***
