LINDA (Extended Version)

Author Diana Burbano
Long Beach, CA


La Linda is shy, funny, inquisitive—and obsessed with Linda Ronstadt, who can sell out a rock concert quicker than any dude, and Lynda Carter, a.k.a. Wonder Woman, who kicks ass in the name of truth, justice, and All-American girl power. The discovery that all three share not only a name but Mexican heritage cements the Lindas' place in her life as guardian angels.

Time: Now

Situation: La Linda is unpacking a box and finds her childhood heroines.

Subject Matter: Latina, Chicana, Mexican, bullying, education, family, Wonder Woman

Note from the Playwright: I wrote this for 365WomenAYear, a project where women unlock women`s stories.

Supplemental Info: See Videos below for more multi-media information about La Linda`s inspirations: Linda Ronstadt and Wonder Woman Lynda Carter.
