Seventy-two miles, that’s the distance between between Tucson, Arizona and Nogales, Mexico. A seemingly insurmountable distance between a mother at a shelter and her American-born husband and children.
This premiere of playwright Hilary Bettis is a searing look of the struggles and dramas of immigration. The play follows a family over 10 years. Driven by necessity and hope we see how they manage separation and struggle to survive in unfamiliar circumstance. Through strength and love they face the pofoundly personal drama of immigration.
