La Broa’ at Trinity

February 17 @ 2:00 pm - 7:30 pm

JANUARY 18, 2024 – FEBRUARY 18, 2024

LA BROA’ (BROAD STREET)

By Orlando Hernández
Inspired by “Latino History of Rhode Island: Nuestras Raíces” by Marta V. Martinez

Directed by Tatyana-Marie Carlo
January 18 – February 18, 2024

LOCAL STORIES, LOCAL COMMUNITIES

 

Doña Rosa’s Market on La Broa’ (Providence’s Broad Street) is where Rhode Islanders of “la comunidad Latina” have gathered for decades. It is there that they share their stories – from the experience of recent immigration to those of Americans whose threads stretch much further back. These real-life stories are heartbreaking, heartwarming, and hilarious. La Broa’ (Broad Street) draws from the true tales of Latina/Latino Rhode Islanders who have made this place their home, as documented by Marta V. Martínez in the oral history “Nuestras Raíces (Our Roots).” This world premiere speaks to what connects us at our core, and what keeps us going each day.
