About this show

An '83 Buick Regal may be an unlikely place to find out what family really means. But when Beatriz, a fiery Cuban mother with a warm heart, and her estranged, 15-year-old Jewish daughter Olivia depart at midnight for a spontaneous cross country road trip, neither is prepared for what lies ahead. That's the starting point for Tony Award winner Quiara Alegria Hudes' 26 Miles, a Thelma and Louise-like tale with a Latina tinge that reminds us that the best souvenirs on the road of life are the relationships we make along the way. And that sometimes all it takes to find yourself is the power of family…and a herd of buffalo.
