A brother sings his sister to sleep with the tale of a glorious tree whose roots grow on both sides of a border. A pair of young lovers dance on their wedding night, then wade across the Río Grande hand-in-hand as their honeymoon.
A precocious seven year old in Jordan becomes an unconventional entrepreneur to pay for her family’s immigration. A nine year old joins the guerrilla in El Salvador after the murder of his parents. A boat hurls two dozen immigrants across the Gulf of Mexico. A father and son rehearse new identities for a new life. So begin the epic quests of Home/Land. With its characteristic humanity, creativity, and optimism, the award-winning Albany Park Theater Project ensemble brings to vivid theatrical life these stories of desire, risk, resilience, heroism, love and hope—as immigrant families strive to stay together and make a better life in the land they’ve come to call home.
