“With anger and lucidity, Luiselli depicts the nightmares these children are forced to flee in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, as well as the destructive ignorance and bigotry that awaits them in America."
Adapted from Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in Forty Questions by Valeria Luiselli, based on her experiences working as a volunteer translator for child migrants seeking asylum, this world premiere stage adaptation includes interviews with young Central American migrants who are members of Unidad Latina en Acción, a New Haven-based human rights organization. On Saturday, the young people who shared their stories will watch the show at the New Haven Peoples Center.
