Drama

 Fleeing prosecution in El Salvador, sixteen-year-old Maria, her older sister Julia, their little brother Oscar, and a young man, Tomas, are nailed into a crate and transported with a load of vegetables from Mexico to Chicago. When they arrive in the city, their struggle to make a new life begins in earnest as they try to earn a living and yet remain "invisible" in order to avoid arrest and deportation. Despite their ordeals, hope and love can still be found, especially in the stories and drawings Maria creates to lift the family's spirits, drawing on their native culture to find meaning in a new and vastly different society. This powerful, uplifting story of triumph over incredible odds was originally commissioned by Lifeline theatre in Chicago. Highly recommended for ages ten to adult. Simple set.
