El Zócalo – 72 Miles | 72 Stories
April 11, 2019 - April 13, 2019
72 Miles | 72 Stories; a culminating event in 72 Hours, April 11 – 13 in the Alley’s Neuhaus Theatre. This will be a curated, city-wide story event where students, families, and organizations will present their stories along with selected artistic participants that will add their monologues, poems, dance and musical offerings on the themes explored by Hilary Bettis’ new play 72 Miles to Go.
About the Play:
72 miles. It’s the distance between Tucson, Arizona and Nogales, Mexico—and the distance between deported immigrant Anita and her American-born husband and children. 72 Miles to Go… follows one family over a decade as they come of age, fall in love, fight in wars, and fight for each other, against the backdrop of deportation, DACA, and changing immigration laws.
72 Miles to Go by Hilary Bettis will have workshop performances at the Alley All New Festival January 18 – 27,
2019. Free to the public.
