Part of the Mark Taper P.L.A.Y. and Young Audiences program. Set during the Great Depression, THE HIGHEST HEAVEN follows a 12-year-old Mexican-American boy who becomes separated from his family as they are deported from the United States. He jouneys through Mexico, searching for his mother. For a time, his life parallels the lives of thousands of butterflies who migrate each year to Mexico where they die, leaving their offspring to fly back to the U.S. on their own.
Though mainly touring through area schools, the show does have five public performances free of charge. Please call for more information. -jam
