    Zoot Suit and Other Plays by Luis Valdez (eBook)

    This critically acclaimed play by Luis Valdez cracks open the depiction of Chicanos on stage, challenging viewers to revisit a troubled moment in our nation's history. Focusing on the events surrounding the Sleepy Lagoon Murder Trial of 1942 and the ensuing Zuit Soot Riots that turned Los Angeles into a bloody war zone, this is a gritty and vivid depiction of the horrifying violence and racism suffered by young Mexican Americans on the home front during World War II. Valdez's cadre of young urban characters struggle with the stereotypes and generalizations of America's dominant culture, the questions of assimilation and patriotism, and a desire to rebel against the mainstream pressures that threaten to wipe them out. Experimenting with brash forms of narration, pop culture of the war era, and complex characterizations, this quintessential exploration of the Mexican-American experience in the United States during the 1940's was the first, and only, Chicano play to open on Broadway.

She's sorry too, because she likes her teacher, Miss Chu, who has black eyes and a sunny smile. She likes her bright, colorful classroom. And she especially likes the playground. But she does not like Babette, a mean-spirited girl who makes fun of Pepita's name, her braids, and even her dog, Lobo. And so she has decided that she doesn't want to go back to school. That night at supper, Pepita tells her family about her decision and Babette's bullying. Her parents encourage her to try again, and advise her to be kind. Her brother tells her not to fight, because bullies like to fight. So against her will, Pepita goes back to school. Babette immediately starts to attack Pepita with unkind comments. In spite of her best intentions, Pepita simply can't be nice to someone as nasty as Babette. To Pepita's surprise, it turns out that Babette knows how to dish out hurtful comments, but she doesn't like to be on the receiving end!
