Freely translated as "Where are you from?" the title of the play refers to the increasing tide of illegal aliens who flee north to the United States from the economically and politically oppressed countries of Latin America. Seeking jobs and freedom from persecution, the refugees are, more often than not, met with indifference and even hostility, regardless of their circumstances, and deported back to their home countries—which can often mean certain death. A moving plea for understanding and forbearance, the play also becomes, in the end, a searing indictment of this nation's immigration policies and a disturbing reminder of the terrible toll which these can exact, whether intentionally or not.  

Winner of the Rosenthal New Play Prize in its initial production by the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park.

"…powerful and articulate…ideal fare for colleges and regional groups looking to fill intimate second stages with innovative new writing." —Variety.

"…visceral theater…should have a special appeal to other institutional theaters equally interested in provoking audiences into political awareness." —NY Times.
