Audible Inchas announced its next production at off-Broadway's Minetta Lane Theatre as Kate del Castillo is set to star in the New York premiere of the way she spoke, written by Isaac Gomez and directed by Jo Bonney.

Audible Artistic Producer Kate Navin commented: "We are thrilled to produce Isaac's deeply moving play at the Minetta Lane Theatre as well as make it available to millions of Audible listeners around the world. Kate del Castillo's raw and inspiring performance is sure to captivate our live audiences in New York City and resonate with Audible members everywhere."

Synopsis: "An actress enters a theater, picks up a script, and begins to read. The story that unfolds details disturbing and haunting accounts of the murder of thousands of women in Juarez, Mexico and one playwright's journey of discovery and responsibility. As lines blur between theatricality and reality, intense and provocative questions are raised and demand deeper examination. Based on a series of intimate interviews, this one-woman play demonstrates the power of speaking truth, even as it considers the implications of doing so."

The creative team behind the way she spoke features scenic design by Riccardo Hernandez, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu, sound design by Elisheba Ittoop, and projection design by Aaron Rhyne.

Kate del Castillo is perhaps best known for her TV role as Teresa Mendoza in Telemundo's "La Reina del Sur" and has also appeared in such films as "No Good Deed," "Julia," "Trade," and "Under the Same Moon." She previously appeared off-Broadway in Los Monologos de la Vagina at the Westside Theatre in 2014.

As with all Audible Theater productions, this one-woman play that will also be recorded and preserved as an audio play.
