UI play 'La Soy Latina' focuses on life as Latina in America

URBANA – The members of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority will perform the ensemble play "La Soy Latina," which explores their identities and connections in American society, on Wednesday evening at the Illini Union.

"An honest and funny look at what it means to be Latina in America, it explores the stories of six diverse women growing up bilingual, bicultural and proud to declare, 'Yo Soy Latina!,'" according to a news release.

The premise of the play unites the women who share their individual anecdotes of living Latina in contemporary America. The show starts at 7 p.m. in the Courtyard Cafe at the Illini Union. Admission is free.
