The Museums of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre Museum Foundation presented “True Life Stories from the Mexican Revolution,” by Gloria Bates Thursday as a part of the “Telling Our Stories” series.

The play was monologues by different key players in the Mexican Revolution based on interviews of the people from various border areas between the United States and Mexico, giving the audience a first person’s view of the events that occurred from 1910 until 1920. The audience heard from Porfirio Diaz, Emiliano Zapata, Jose Escobedo, Pancho Villa, Aurelia Phillips and Judge Joseph U. Sweeney and others.

The play focused on expanding the understanding of the social and political upheaval experienced in Mexico and the border region in that decade.
