Audible Inc., the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word entertainment, is pleased to announce the New York premiere of 2018 Dramatists Guild Lanford Wilson Award winner Isaac Gomez’s the way she spoke, directed by Jo Bonney, and starring Kate del Castillo, as the next Audible Theater production at the Minetta Lane Theatre.

Kate del Castillo (Netflix's La Reina Del Sur) stars in this haunting and theatrical one-woman play that takes us from a New York stage to the treacherous streets of Juarez, Mexico where thousands of women have been murdered in an epidemic of violence that has yet to stop. Written by Isaac Gomez (Steppenwolf’s La Ruta) based on his intimate interviews, the way she spoke is a raw and riveting exploration of responsibility, and follows one playwright's journey to give voice to a city of women silenced by violence, fear and a world that has turned a deaf ear to their stories. Directed by Obie and Lucille Lortel winner Jo Bonney and produced by Audible Theater (Billy Crudup in Harry Clarke, Carey Mulligan in Girls & Boys).

The creative team includes Riccardo Hernandez (scenic design), Emilio Sosa (costume design), Lap Chi Chu (lighting design), Elisheba Ittoop (sound design), and Aaron Rhyne (projection design).

As with previous Audible Theater shows at the Minetta Lane, Audible will also record and release the way she spoke as an audio play, extending its reach to millions of listeners around the world. Award-winning and critically acclaimed Audible performances of captivating stage productions starring Billy Crudup, Judith Light, Aasif Mandvi, John Lithgow, Carey Mulligan, and others are available for preorder and download at www.audible.com/theater.
