See it if A play about ILLEGAL immigration. Two fine young actors. Play is a heartfelt one.
Don't see it if It brings out the pains of trying to get to America. It misses the point of reality, however. Most Americans came to this country Legally.
See it if 18 y.o HS girl tries to cope w/ her parents’ deportation and a smitten boy who wants to save her. Wonderful performances, full of feeling.
Don't see it if You are uninterested in families affected by deportation, and a tender teenage romance.
"It softens the blow with regard to just whose life and circumstances it chooses to present…It's impossible not to leave the theatre wondering how to fix our system…Plaza and Owens are convincing…This idealistic relationship, as well as the reminders of the thematic connection to the biosphere, tends to tamp down the impact of what might otherwise be far more tearjerkingly powerful material. Imperfect as it is, [it] deserves attention for attending to so critical a social and political problem."
"The strength of director Christopher Domig’s choices precede the narrative...The play, written with incredible empathy by Chris Cragin-Day, explores the parallels of how society at large treats diversity as a nuisance...The play is not without its faults, but those are few and brief...It is an endearing piece of art, anchored by two fantastic performances by Natalia Plaza and Zac Owens."
