About the Show

Two sets of storytellers, some now and some in the 17th century, cross a country, risking everything for a new life. As they tell their tales, their lives and plots combine and intertwine into the same conclusion.

Absorbing, Resonant, Relevant, Must see, Romantic

See it if You are looking for a play with immediate relevance to your world as it is today. You want to support Latinx artists.

Don't see it if You dislike blackbox style plays. This is a barebones play. Effective, but sparse in design. Read more

Must-see / very entertaining, Beautiful music (guitar) accompaniment, Some strong committed performances, Relevant / absorbing / engrossing / resonant, Well-written moving script / creative story-telling

See it if you'd enjoy exploring a different setting (black box theater in Queens), w/a tight-knit cast, moving script, & beautiful background music.

Don't see it if play(s)-w/in-a-play isn't your thing; use of another language not always translated throws you; minimalist theater doesn't rock your world. Read more

Absorbing, Clever, Cliched, Resonant, Great acting

See it if You like a well acted play that demonstrates how stories build community

Don't see it if You are sick of hamfisted Donald Trump references in every GD play that opens. Mind that the wrapper narrative is preachy not absorbing.

Absorbing, Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Profound

See it if You enjoy small scale storytelling with a purpose. There is joy in hearing a classic legend, and soul in the immigrants finding their story.

Don't see it if You have no patience or willingness to hear about people you may not understand.

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you like creativity, the writing takes you through every person & leaves you wanting more. Will give you all the feels for each character.

Don't see it if you are not someone who can see things from another person's view and if you don't like creativity.

Absorbing, Great acting, Entertaining, Profound, Relevant

See it if You want to share an evening with an audience and actors who care about our shared humanity with deportees, re-enacting stories to stay sane

Don't see it if You don't like imaginative theater that layers cultural stories into the new stories of the people re-enacting fables for comfort/courage
