El Gringuito is about a redheaded Latino who explores the ups and downs of finding acceptance in a Latino community where "you don't look like anyone around you." It's a poignant and hilarious account of growing up looking different while trying to belong within your own people. This show will be presented in English, with some parts in Spanish and French.
