Awoke One -- a surreal re-imagining of the Passion of Christ, and part of a cycle Agueros called "auto-sacramental." The term refers to a very old kind of religious and allegorical drama, akin to medieval mystery plays performed with much pageantry on holy days in cities and towns, bringing the Passion of Christ or the meaning of the Eucharist directly to the populace.

He Can't Even Read Spanish -- early seventies in New York City... presented for the first time as a stage play, it tells the story of Don Luis Rivera, abodeguerro, or bodega owner, trying to take care of business at a time of heightened Puerto Rican militancy.

Ye Tragical Historie of Doctor Pedro Albizu Campos -- a blast of truth telling fire from Puerto Rico's great nationalist leader, as if in answer to the protest of the young revolutionaries occupying the library.

Notary Sojac -- a wild comic vision of homeless people, a depressed beat cop and visiting Gods from Greek mythology in Hell's Kitchen; combines fantasy and harsh New York street reality...
