72 miles. It’s the distance between Tucson, Arizona and Nogales, Mexico—and the distance between a recently deported mother and her American-born husband and children. 72 miles to go… follows one family over a decade as they grow up, fall in love, fight in wars, and fight for each other. This play by Hilary Bettis (“The Americans”) returns to the Alley following development in the 2019 Alley All New Festival and its world premiere Off-Broadway.
The production contains strobe effects.
