Cuentos Del Corazon, Stories from the Heart
This one-act play blends together the many flavors of being Latino/a. A Latino writers group gathers at La Taza Cafe – rico cafe con sabor; a coffee shop serving up more than just coffee….cultural conversations are always on the menu. The young writers share their personal narratives about Latino identity and the process of learning from and about each other.
