Plays by Latina and African American Women Bring More Representation to DePauw’s Community

DePauw’s theater community expands its horizons to focus on messages portrayed by people of color.

Plays by Latina and African American women is a series of one-act plays that will be held Nov. 15-18, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. and Sunday 1-3 p.m. The plays are co-directed by senior LaToya Logan and Professor of Communications and Theatre Tim Good. These plays were chosen as a way to bring more representation of groups that are typically marginalized to the DePauw Theatre.

Chloe Johnson, first-year, stars in She Talks to Beethoven. She said that she took on this role as a way to honor women of color who are playwrights. “I thought, ‘why not take advantage of the moment?’ There are four plays and they are contrasting yet they each highlight different themes,” said Johnson.
