Retratos: My People, Myself

BUY TICKETS

Originally created for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and with Young Playwright’s Theater, this joyous theatrical gallery of the many faces of Latin America is rooted in the writings of D.C. school students. Their vibrant words and images infuse this interactive play with intensely personal reflections on themes of identity and heritage—and a new generation’s dreams for America’s future. Portrait Gallery educators are on hand to connect with teachers and students after the performance.

Presented in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
