Seventy-two miles. That’s the space between Nogales, Mexico and Tucson, Arizona—and the world of distance that separates a mother at a shelter and her American-born husband and children.
This premiere from Juilliard playwright Hilary Bettis (“The Americans”) follows a splintered family over 10 years of strength, struggle and love, as they face the profoundly personal drama of immigration.
