F R O M T H E A R T I S T I C D I R E C TO R Hello! I hope that this finds you safe, healthy, and well. Thank you very much for joining us for our virtual production of THE WAY SHE SPOKE by Isaac Gómez. As the first (and, at writing, only), theater in the state of Wisconsin approved by Actors’ Equity Association to gather artists in person, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s virtual productions represent a crucial step in the process of returning to live performances, as well as the hard-won means by which we are able to provide artists with meaningful compensation and crucial health insurance weeks. Playwright Isaac Gómez, author of THE WAY SHE SPOKE, is unafraid to tackle serious concerns head-on, but his voice never veers to agit-prop—his is a remarkable blend of the poetic, political, and deeply personal. Always lyrical, beautiful, ardently and assertively human, and fully revealing of the individuals at the center of important larger issues, I hope that you find in Isaac’s voice the rare and remarkable mix of empath and warrior that I find so compelling. THE WAY SHE SPOKE’s examination of the roots of the devastation of the femicides in Juárez, Mexico, feels to me necessary and urgent as we watch in American culture the growth of an increasingly casual misogyny that allows horrific acts of violence against women to go unchecked. THE WAY SHE SPOKE holds that mirror up unrelentingly—and necessarily. It is a challenging play focusing much-needed attention on a challenging topic as we continue to wrestle with our national character— both who we are in our own borders, and how we treat those just outside. Thanks again for joining us. If you find the work rewarding, please help spread the word.

D E L D I R E C TO R A R T Í S T I C O ¡Hola a todos! Espero que todos ustedes se encuentren bien y saludables. Muchas gracias por asistir a nuestra producción virtual de LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ de Isaac Gómez. Como el primer (y, al momento de escribir esto, único) teatro del estado de Wisconsin aprobado por la Actors’ Equity Association para juntar a artistas en persona, las producciones virtuales del Milwaukee Chamber Theatre representan un paso decisivo en el proceso de volver a presentaciones en vivo y además son símbolo de los medios – conseguidos con esfuerzo – por los que podemos proporcionarles a artistas compensación significativa y las semanas de trabajo necesarias para calificar para el seguro médico. El dramaturgo Isaac Gómez, autor de LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ, no tiene miedo de hacer frente a graves preocupaciones, pero su voz nunca llega al extremo de propaganda política. Su voz es una mezcla extraordinaria de lo poético, lo político y lo profundamente personal – siempre es lírica, hermosa, apasionadamente y afirmativamente humana y enteramente reveladora de los individuos que están en el centro de problemas importantes y amplios. Espero que usted encuentre en la voz de Isaac esa mezcla tan rara y excepcional de émpata y guerrero que a mí me cautiva tanto. El análisis de las raíces de la devastación de los feminicidios de Juárez que se encuentra en LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ me parece necesario y urgente a la vez que presenciamos en la cultura estadounidense el aumento de una misoginia cada vez más casual que permite que ocurran descontroladamente horribles actos de violencia contra las mujeres. LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ desenmascara todo esto implacablemente – y necesariamente. Es una obra desafiante que dirige la atención hacia un tema desafiante a medida que seguimos lidiando con nuestro carácter nacional – tanto quiénes somos dentro de nuestras propias fronteras y cómo tratamos a los que están justo al otro lado. Gracias nuevamente por acompañarnos. Si encuentra la obra estimulante, favor de ayudarnos a correr la voz. 4

AU D I E N C E G U I D E On One Purpose of Playwriting At our virtual first rehearsal for THE WAY SHE SPOKE, playwright Isaac Gómez shared the story of growing up on a border—El Paso, Texas, USA, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico—and how encountering the women of Juárez inspired two stories that had to be told. Juárez has been rated in cycles one of the most dangerous cities in the world, with a high incidence of violent crime. In 2020, Juárez ranked 20th internationally according to murder rates per capita (notably behind St. Louis last year, however, though about on par with Baltimore). Gómez’ family stopped crossing in the aughts given their consciousness of that danger. Given the timing, Gómez shared that a relationship to the subject matter of THE WAY SHE SPOKE came late—a discovery in later teen years about las desaparecidas that led to a journey with a friend, Blanca. Blanca navigated a nineteenyear-old Gómez through Juárez to interview, chronicle, catalogue, and ultimately lift up a story much less visible through art: violence against women so rampant in the region that only the term “femicide” could compass it. The result of a decade-long mission? Gómez’ sister plays LA RUTA and THE WAY SHE SPOKE, which share and honor the women of Juárez and their continued struggle for visibility and justice. LA RUTA had its world premiere at Steppenwolf in 2019, and THE WAY SHE SPOKE enjoyed an off-Broadway production by Audible at Minetta Lane Theatre the same year. A “docu-mythologia,” as Gómez terms it, THE WAY SHE SPOKE was written in the hope that “one day someone will watch this play and know what to do.” “I know it’s not enough,” said Gómez in rehearsal. But the playwright, who builds the scaffold on which a work of art is crafted, whose words reach us, is the beginning. Continuing the Conversation Share your thoughts with your fellow theatergoers, or offer them to us at MCT. We always want to hear from you. (Write to marcella@milwaukeechambertheatre.org!) For Pre-Performance Discussion 1. Who are the women in your life whom you most admire? Why? 2. Have you experienced any advantage or challenge at work based on your gender(s)? What about in down time or domestic life? When did you become conscious of that advantage or disadvantage, and how? 3. The theater can be dangerous. It has the power to stir the masses… or the individual. When have you as an audience member or artist been moved or irresistibly called to action by a work of art? 4. What do you perceive is the purpose of a documentary? 5. How would you categorize your reaction in the face of a threat (physical or otherwise)—fight, flight, freeze? How do you move past your reaction to a threat? 6. When have you experienced a bond of close friendship tested, and for what reason? 7. Who has the right to tell someone’s story, in your view, when that story is deeply rooted in gender or culture? Can someone from outside a group do so effectively? 8

For Post-Performance Discussion (Potential spoilers ahead) 1. The Actress, in our Director’s words, is the vessel to “shaman” us through this story and its truths. At what points did you experience her most keenly as a guide? 2. Of those we met in the play, whose story has stayed with you, and why? 3. Mothers took many forms in this play, from mothers the playwright encounters to La Virgen de Guadalupe, the form of the Blessed Virgin Mary to appear in 1531 in Mexico. What do you see the mothers in all their forms offered either character or the audience? 4. The play is called a “docu-mythologia.” How would you define the term after the journey of THE WAY SHE SPOKE? 5. The Actress confronts the invisible playwright about whether he thought about how his work would affect her. What was your experience? 6. Related to the above, how do you feel your own gender(s) affected how you heard the play? 7. The Actress’ final words include “It’s happening everywhere.” How did you experience this moment? As indictment of the playwright? A call to action? Other? RESOURCES The following is a curated list of resources for further study on this urgent cause—or immediate exploration.

G U Í A D E AU D I E N C I A Sobre un propósito de escribir obras de teatro En nuestro primer ensayo virtual para LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ, el dramaturgo Isaac Gómez nos contó su historia de crecer en una frontera – El Paso, Texas, Estados Unidos y Ciudad Juárez, México – y relató cómo sus encuentros con las mujeres de Juárez inspiraron dos cuentos que debían ser contados. Juárez ha sido clasificada periódicamente como una de las ciudades más peligrosas del mundo, con un alto índice de delitos violentos. En 2020, Juárez ocupó el puesto número veinte a nivel internacional según las tasas de homicidios intencionales per cápita (es digno de mención que Juárez tenía una tasa de homicidios más baja que la de San Luis, Misuri en 2020, pero más o menos a la par de la de Baltimore). La familia de Gómez dejó de cruzar la frontera en la primera década del siglo XXI debido a su consciencia de ese peligro. Como resultado, Gómez nos contó que su relación con el tema de LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ llegó tarde – su descubrimiento de las desparecidas de Juárez en los últimos años de su adolescencia resultó en un viaje con una amiga, Blanca. Blanca guio a un Gómez de 19 años por Juárez para entrevistar, registrar, catalogar y por último crear consciencia a través del arte de una historia previamente invisible: una violencia contra las mujeres tan descontrolada en la región que solo el término “feminicidio” sería capaz de abarcarla. ¿El resultado de esta misión que duró una década? Las obras hermanas de Gómez LA RUTA y LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ, que comparten y honran a las mujeres de Juárez y su lucha constante por visibilidad y justicia. LA RUTA tuvo su estreno mundial en Steppenwolf en 2019 y LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ gozó de una producción offBroadway por Audible en Minetta Lane Theatre ese mismo año. Una docu-mitología, en palabras de Gómez, LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ fue escrita con la esperanza de que “algún día alguien vea esta obra y sepa qué hacer.” “Yo sé que no es suficiente,” comentó Gómez en el ensayo. Pero este dramaturgo, que sienta las bases para que pueda ser creada una obra de arte – cuyas palabras nos llegan – sí es el comienzo. Continuar la conversación Comparta sus reflexiones con sus coespectadores o compártalas con nosotros en MCT. Siempre nos da gusto escuchar de ustedes. (¡Escríbale a marcella@milwaukeechambertheatre.org!) Para hablar antes de la obra 1. ¿Quiénes son las mujeres en su vida a las que más admira? ¿Por qué? 2. ¿Ha experimentado alguna ventaja o algún desafío en el trabajo basado en su(s) género(s)? ¿Y en su tiempo libre o en la vida doméstica? ¿Cuándo se dio cuenta de esa ventaja o desventaja? ¿Y cómo? 3. El teatro puede ser peligroso. Tiene la capacidad de provocar a la muchedumbre…o al individuo. Como espectador o artista, ¿cuándo ha sido conmovido o llamado irresistiblemente a la acción por una obra de arte? 4. Según usted, ¿cuál es el propósito de un documental? 5. ¿Cómo categorizaría su reacción ante una amenaza (física o no) – luchar, huir o congelarse? ¿Cómo supera su reacción ante una amenaza?

Para hablar después de la obra (Posibles spoilers a continuación) 1. La Actriz, según nuestra directora, es como un chamán que nos guía por esta historia y sus verdades. ¿En qué momentos de la obra sintió usted más profundamente que ella le estaba guiando? 2. De los personajes a los que conocimos en la obra, ¿cuya historia se le ha quedado grabada? ¿Por qué? 3. Las madres se manifiestan de muchas formas en esta obra, desde las madres con las que el dramaturgo se encuentra hasta la Virgen de Guadalupe, la forma de la Santísima Virgen María que apareció en México en 1531. Según usted, ¿qué les ofrecieron las madres en todas sus formas a los personajes o a la audiencia? 4. En palabras del dramaturgo, la obra es una “docu-mitología.” ¿Cómo definiría usted este término después de la travesía de LA MANERA EN QUE ELLA HABLÓ? 5. La Actriz enfrenta al dramaturgo invisible acerca de si él consideró cómo su obra la afectaría. Describa su experiencia con este momento. 6. En relación con lo anterior, ¿cómo cree que su(s) propio(s) género(s) afectó/afectaron la manera en que usted experimentó la obra? 7. Las últimas palabras de la Actriz incluyen, “Está pasando por todos lados.” ¿Qué pensó de este momento? ¿Fue una acusación de parte del dramaturgo? ¿Una llamada a la acción? ¿Algo diferente?
