When Andrea finds a hand-scrawled note from a Chinese sweatshop worker in the lining of her designer coat, she sets off on a passionate journey to free him.

eseteatro eSe Teatro empowers local Latino artists to create, produce, and present professional theatre in English, Spanish, bilingual, and Spanglish. We strive for inclusion and self definition of our artists, representing "all the colors in the rainbow of brown" to educate audiences about the many expressions of our Latinidad in the U.S. eSe employs artists and provides them a high visibility professional platform within Seattle mainstream theatre. Our strong social component brings theatre to under-served Latino communities such as monolingual, low-income, homeless, and at-risk youth audiences. For more information on eSe Teatro, visit their website at eseteatro.org and Facebook at www.facebook.com/eSeTeatro .
