Performances will be in the Little Theater on October 20th at 6pm and 21st at 2pm. Tickets are free but should be reserved at the event’s EventBrite page here.

Just Like Us is based on Helen Thorpe’s bestselling book. This documentary-style play follows four Latina teenage girls in Denver- two of whom are documented and two who are not- through young adulthood. Their close-knit friendships begin to unravel when immigration status dictates the girls’ opportunities, or lack thereof. When a political firestorm arises, each girl’s future becomes increasingly complicated. Just Like Us poses difficult, yet essential questions about what makes us American.

Brown Bag Theatre Company is an on campus ensemble of artist and scholars dedicated to sharing and celebrating LatinX culture. For more information about Brown Bag, click here.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
