Bienestar Workshop

Date: August 30th, 2011
Location: The Glenn and Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center, Hillsboro

A tee shirt in search of a rare flower…
A sofa collecting dust…
A shimmering gold ring with one hundred diamonds…
A pair of scissors with a secret to tell…

These are just some of the 12 new characters brought to life by a handful of talented actors at the Walters Cultural Arts Center, in performances of 6 brand new plays created by writers of the Bienestar workshop.  The evening featured 4 plays performed in English, one performed in Spanish, and one in which each of the two characters spoke a different language.
