About The Dreamers: A Bloodline

Part One of a Trilogy on Immigration

Cara Mía Theatre Co. presents the world premiere of The Dreamers: A Bloodline, a production that reveals the experience of three women who travel from El Salvador through Mexico to reach the United States for the benefit of their children. These women, among other immigrants, risk countless dangers along their journey in order flee poverty and violence. The Dreamers: A Bloodline shows how the human spirit dares to overcome the most daunting challenges to the human condition such as those encountered on the immigrants’ journey.

Based on interviews of immigrants in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and research on contemporary stories of immigration from Central America through Mexico, The Dreamers: A Bloodline is a dramatic performance written by Cara Mía Theatre Co.’s artists over the course of a year and a half, under the direction of artistic director, David Lozano.

The Dreamers: A Bloodline has been selected as a recipient of a grant from the TACA Donna Wilhelm Family New Works Fund.
