Estrella Cruz

Go to Hades with ‘Estrella’ & Bette Davis Sophia Chen Yale Daily News 3/28/2008

“Smith takes the ancient Greek myth and interprets it in a daring new way with her play ‘Estrella Cruz,’ directed by Jesse Jou DRA ’10 at the Yale Cabaret. Estrella, the modern Persephone, daughter of ‘the most beautiful inventor in all of Here,’ is played by Smith herself. Whisked away to The Junkyard, Estrella finds Pablo the Junker (Joby Earle DRA ’10) and immediately falls into his bed and gets pregnant. She believes herself in love, ignores her mom’s phone calls, spurns rescue, gains weight and eats nonstop.”
