Connecticut playwright and actress Cin Martinez, center, played Odessa in "Water By the Spoonful" during a five-day run at the University of Saint Joseph’s Hoffman Auditorium, alongside Eddie Cruz, Jr., left, and Joslyn Melendez Eaddy, right.

At least three area theater companies in Connecticut are showcasing work by Latinx women playwrights this winter:

"Queen of Basel" boasts an all-Latinx cast and crew, while "Espejos: Clean" is a bilingual production with supertitles projected over the stage.

This hour, we go behind-the-scenes with playwrights, directors and actors, hearing about each powerful production, and the importance of spotlighting Latinx stories where we live.
