October 18 @ 7:30 pm – November 10 @ 8:30 pm CDT
Ten-year-old Pilar breathes deeply of her grandmother’s rebozo to relive memories of her beloved abuelita—making corn tortillas, dueling the monsters under the bed and journeying to the forest known as El Círculo Mágico. Slowly, the scent begins to fade – and with it, Pilar’s memories. Amidst the monarch butterflies’ annual migration and Día de los Muertos celebrations, soar with Pilar on her journey in this bilingual world premiere play, discovering that “when you love someone, they never really leave you.”
Performance runtime is approximately 90 minutes, including intermission. Suggested for families with young people ages 5 – 17+.
