Dolores Díaz is a Chicago-based Chicana playwright originally from the border city of Laredo, Texas. Her plays investigate the gray areas that defy definition, the contradictions within the individual and group, and the hybrid places where the notion of “natural” is investigated, challenged, and revealed. She uses boundaries as a vantage point to observe different points of view and as a means to interrogate current affairs.
Díaz is currently in residence with TimeLine Theatre, developing work with Broken Nose Theatre, and teaching via the National High School Institute at Northwestern University. In the fall and spring, she will teach at Columbia College and Texas Tech University, respectively.
