Based on Helen Thorpe’s bestselling book, this documentary-style play by Karen Zacarías 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, making each girl’s future increasingly complicated.
