October 28, 2009

Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company invites you to join us for a staged reading of 26 MILES written by Quiara Alegria Hudes, Pulitzer Prize finalist and book writer for the Tony-winning musical IN THE HEIGHTS. 

About the play
The time is 1986. Olivia is a half-Cuban, half-Jewish 15-year old. She doesn’t fit in at school and she doesn’t fit in at home with her new step-mother’s rules. After a failed attempt to swallow sixteen ibuprofens, she calls her estranged mother and the two embark on a spontaneous road trip, searching for antiques, buffalo, and a remedy for their broken hearts.

Featuring: Rachael Van Wormer, Catalina Maynard*, Lance Arthur Smith*, and Claudio Raygoza.
Directed by Seema Sueko*
*member of Actors Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States.
