Las Mujeres by Erlina Ortiz

To support Power Street Theatre Company’s upcoming production “Las Mujeres” by Erlina Ortiz, a play centering the voices of marginalized women from Herstory’s past. “Las Mujeres” will premiere at West Kensington Ministry in March 2018 for Women’s Herstory Month in order to preserve herstories, defend womanhood, and share culture through art for social change. PSTC is unique because it is the only theatre company in Philadelphia that is led by all women of color. Power Street aims to provide Latinx and multicultural audience members the opportunity to witness self-reflective characters and cultural themes on stage in their communities.
