‘Carnaval’ Festival To Highlight Latinx Stories In Theater

More than 40 Chicago actors will participate in the Latinx Theatre Commons’ Carnaval of New Latinx Work from July 19 to 21 to highlight Latinx stories and talent. The festival will feature live readings of six new plays performed and produced by Latinx actors, directors, designers and playwrights at DePaul University’s Theatre School. Director Lisa Portes of DePaul University and playwright Guadalís Del Carmen join the Morning Shift to talk about the need for Latinx representation in theater, especially during the Trump administration.
