Event description

Description

"Just Like Us", by Karen Zacarias. Presented by Brown Bag Theatre Company and sponsored by the Claire Trevor School of the Arts.

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. Just Like Us poses difficult, yet essential questions about what makes us American.

Located at The Little Theater on the campus of The University of Claifornia, Irvine.
