      Let Your Women Keep Silence by Margaret Ann O'Connell
      Let Your Women Keep Silence is about the final struggles of the
      seventeenth-century Mexican nun Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, one of the
      three great poets of the Golden Age of Spanish poetry. In her struggles--=
      to
      write and eventually to speak truth to power--Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
      managed to make a case for widening and enriching the lives of women in
      her Response to Sor Filotea, the first defense, certainly in the New World=
      , of a
      woman's right to be all that a human being can be.

      Greater Than Magellan by Alex Ladd
      An evening of short train plays.
      In Greater than Magellan, a young Portuguese waiter passes the time away
      memorizing train schedules and fantasizing about exotic locations.

      In The Negro Writer, an American novelist travels through Russia by train =
      in
      the fateful days before the Russian revolution.
      In The Next Stop , we meet a Civil War train conductor speeding forward
      through time and are propelled into the future in a high speed train zoomi=
      ng
      under the Pacific and finally thrust into outer space itself. The convers=
      ation
      turns increasingly bizarre and we get an eerie glimpse into life in the =
      future,
      with the conductor as our guide.

      that will give him enough cash to go straight and make him the man that he=

      struggles to be. When his emissary arrives, he must decide whether to give=

      her what she wants, even if it kills her.
