About this show

Chicago Playworks for Families and Young Audiences present The Highest Heaven, by José Cruz González, directed by Chicago Playworks Artistic Director Lisa Portes. Originally premiered in 1999, this play is the heartfelt story of a young boy named Huracán, one of the thousands forced to return to Mexico during America's Great Depression. Abruptly alone and separated from his mother, Huracán follows the path of the monarch butterfly on a haunting search for his past and future. Along the way, he undergoes his own metamorphosis from little boy to young man with an inner strength that no one can take away. No performances on 1/20, 1/31, 2/7, 2/12, 2/17 and 3/2
