Eleanor Holdridge, a Catholic University professor, directs and co-wrote this adaptation of the popular story, which like Zorro himself appears to be torn between identities. As a tongue-in-cheek action play, it succeeds. Where the play runs into trouble is its too-clever mirroring of Spanish drama. The actors speak overformally in variations of Californio accents. “There speaks mercy in your heart,” is Zorro’s passive-voice response when an impassioned Lolita begs him to be more careful in his pursuits of robbing the rich to serve the poor.The actors can fence, however, and well choreographed fights—in slip-and-you’ll-stab-someone proximity to the audience—are one reason the play is so watchable.
