Carnaval 2015 celebrates Latino theatermakers

Playwrights often look to their own experience, family dynamics and cultural background to inform their work. The work can be a window for audiences to see into this world that may be different than their own. On Thursday, some of the leading voices on the Latino theater scene are gathering to exchange ideas about getting more plays with Latino themes on the stage and into new audiences. Carnaval 2015 at The Theatre School at DePaul University will also bring never before seen works to the stage, like Octavio Solis’ Mother Road. We’re joined by Solis, along with director Juliette Carrillio and festival organizer Lisa Portes. (WBEZ/Lacy Scarmana)
