Fuentes participates in original play

BEREA, Ohio — Elisa Fuentes of Troy was part of the cast and crew that presented professor Les Hunter’s original play “Weimar” at Baldwin Wallace. Set in Weimar Republic-era Germany during the early 20th century, the new play follows a group of strong-willed women attempting to resist the increasingly authoritarian leanings of their government. Fuentes, an acting and Spanish major, understudied a part in the production.

Commissioned by BW to write an all-female play, Hunter collaborated with the actors to come up with the final product, hearing their personal stories and thoughts on current political and social issues.
