In the Latino Cultural Center’s three-day one-act play festival, a trio of theater companies present pieces telling stories from the perspective of women. Opening night Thursday features Cara Mía Theatre Company’s workshop of The Dreamers Trilogy — Part 1, a new play written by Cara Mía’s artistic ensemble, directed by David Lozano, exploring the journeys of women who flee the poverty and violence of El Salvador and try to get to the United States. (See the full trilogy at Cara Mía next summer.) The other opening-night show is Lucia Gonzalez’s one-woman comedy De Casada y Otras “Adas” (performed in Spanish). Friday night brings the premiere of Teatro Flor’s Candela, a dramatic verse-play in Spanish based on stories by Gabriela Huesca. Shows are at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Latino Cultural Center, 2600 Live Oak St. All tickets are $10. Call 214-671-0045.
