Power Street Theatre’s “Siluetas” offers trilingual treat

As playwright Erlina Ortiz composes dialogue for her work, she hears the voices of her characters in her head.

Mostly, but not always, they speak English.

That’s why the characters in Ortiz’s “Siluetas,” offered by Power Street Theatre through June 23, sometimes converse in their first languages – Arabic and Spanish. 

“That’s just the way these characters are,” Ortiz said. “It’s what I hear in my head.”
