Priscilla Page

reading from her work When The Women Gather, writer and UMASS faculty member draws us into her inner circle with stories about growing up in a mixed-race Mexican American family


Priscilla Page’s When The Women Gather is a collection of poetry and testimonio. Growing up in a bi-cultural home, Ms. Page listened and learned much from her mother and her mother’s sisters, each one of them strong and struggling through their lives as mixed-race Mexican American women. Many of the voices that emerge in this piece come from her mothers, aunties, sisters, lovers, and friends, and she says, “the stories are all true except for the ones I make up.” Page is a dramaturg and writer as well as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Theater at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is currently working on a book project that centers on the play Wings of Night Sky, Wings of Morning Light by poet Joy Harjo. She worked as the program curator at New WORLD Theater at UMASS, for five years and served as the resident dramaturg there and oversaw all archival and documentation efforts, managed the Asian American Women Playwrights Archive, and supervised an on-going team of dramaturgy student interns. She has worked on projects with Laurie Carlos, Ping Chong and others.
