“Eight Tales of Pedro” is Mark-Eugene Garcia’s award-winning play about a group of immigrants traveling together in a van across Mexico, risking everything to make a new life.
This play with music intertwines the stories of a 17th century Pedro following his true love to Veracruz, and a modern Peter crossing the border in a van full of hopeful immigrants. Sometimes it’s true that the more things change, the more things stay the same.
All anyone wants is to make a better life for their children. Most Americans have no idea what people go through for that opportunity. People who make this sacrifice, make great Americans.
If you’ve been through this, go see the play, and you will know that you are not alone. If you’ve been through this, go see the play to understand what is going on.
