When two brothers are dropped off at their grandmother’s, the boys are not quite sure where he is going or when they will see him again. All they know is grandmother’s house smells like old people and they are a little afraid of her. And that dad has crossed the border to build a life in Atlantis…or wait, Atlanta? As the months go on and no word comes from dad, the boys are bounced between family members and encounter first loves, bullies, and loss. They soon find themselves at the border in search of their father and a place to call home. A funny, candid, and ultimately heartbreaking tale of separated families, growing up, and the children lost in migration.
The play was originally written in Spanish by one of Mexico’s premiere writers, Javier Malpica, and will be presented as a reading in an English translation by celebrated CubanAmerican playwright Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas.
