ABOUT THE PLAY

When Tamara and Victor are asked to watch Lorena, a 15-year-old Honduran, for a few days until her new employers can pick her up, they begin to understand how easy it is to become complicit when it comes to exploiting refugees in a world that leaves few options for those escaping violence in the Americas.
