She Wore Those Shoes 
by Erlina Ortiz
Monday, March 14, 2016 @ 7pm

Erlina is so proud to have her play She Wore Those Shoes presented as part of Theatre Exile's 2016 Studio X-hibition series. She is best know for her work with Power Street Theatre Company where she is Resident Playwright sometimes, actor sometimes, and director often. Erlina went to Temple University where she obtained her B.A in Theatre with an Acting Concentration. These days, she enjoys juggling her artistic hats whether it be directing for the Paula Vogel Mentors Project at Philadelphia Young Playwrights, creating a piece from scratch with her ensemble Power Street Theatre Company, or working on several plays she has in progress. ​​Erlina believes that everyone has a voice no matter, age, sex, race, sexual orientation or any of the other labels we use to segregate ourselves. Her hope is to continue creating work that explores and empowers these unheard voices. Erlina would like to say thank you to Gaby Sanchez for telling her, "You are a playwright goddamn it! Now own it!" #powerstreet #sheworethoseshoes
