NQuita Mitos | Tanya Saracho A.'s new play consists of monologues by three multidimensional Mexican-American women. A frustrated mother flees her husband. A girl with no self-esteem tries to be optimistic about her relationship. And in the most complicated monologue, an unlikable young woman denies her family and ethnicity and rebels against the identity imposed on her by others. Each role is performed by a different actress on Thursday and Friday, but on Saturday and Sunday Saracho plays all three characters, adeptly shifting her voice to differentiate them. In this Teatro Luna production the text is in English but includes some Spanish, which presents a slight language barrier. Even the most Anglo viewer, however, should be pulled in by these funny, sad, fascinating accounts. --Jenn Goddu a Through 12/17: Thu-Sat 7:30 PM, Sun 3 PM, Viaduct Theater, 3111 N. Western, 773-878-5862, $10-$15.
