Just Like Us
Performances begin May 16 for the Los Angeles premiere of Just Like Us, written by Karen Zacariás and directed by José Luis Valenzuela. What makes us American? Based on Helen Thorpe’s bestselling book, this documentary-style play follows four Latina teenage girls in Denver, two of whom are documented and two who are not, through young adulthood. Their close-knit friendships begin to unravel when immigration status dictates the girls’ opportunities — or lack thereof. When a political firestorm arises, each girl’s future becomes increasingly complicated.
(May 16 – June 7: Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m.)
