Searching for Aztlan Flyer

This new bilingual play begins in 2012 with the Tucson school board's acceptance of HB 2281, shutting down Mexican American studies and removing its books from classrooms. A giant dust storm strikes the city and leaves a teacher, Dolores, unemployed and in an alternate reality. Come see how Dolores faces the journey to the mythical city of Aztlán.
