Danny thought his biggest problem was that his sister was about to marry a total loser... until his father showed up on their doorstep after disappearing years before.
In 2010, Working Theater commissioned this impressive first full-length play by new voice Manuel Borras. Song to a Child Like Me is a powerful look at the life of a 1st generation Puerto Rican youth coming into his own in the 1980's Bronx.
