Quiara Alegría Hudes, Pulitzer Prize-winning cocreator of In the Heights, tells a story as big as America and as intimate as the love between a mother and her daughter. Beatriz arrives in Philadelphia to convince her estranged 16-year-old daughter Olivia to join her on a cross-country road trip to California. Along the way, they encounter a mosaic of characters as diverse and interesting as America itself. But the hard truth of Beatriz's undocumented status and pending deportation to Mexico threatens to build a wall between the two, just as they are finally reconnecting. With sharp comedy and a winning acoustic score by folk-rock star Erin McKeown,Miss You Like Hell is an American story for our time.
