Based on Helen Thorpe's best-selling book, this documentary-style play follows four Latina teenage girls in Denver - two of whom are undocumented. The girls' close-knit friendships begin to unravel when immigration status dictates their opportunities (or lack thereof). Just Like Us poses difficult, yet essential, questions about what makes us American. Just Like Us is presented by special arrangement with The Gersh Agency, 41 Madison Ave., 33rd Floor, NY, NY 10010.
