Trailer Reviews! “A master class.” –New York Times “A master of his craft. Hoyle is one of our theatrical gems.” –San Francisco Chronicle “Dan Hoyle’s brilliant portrayals are exactly what we need right now.” — Cecilia Muñoz, immigration advocate and Domestic Policy Council Director in Obama White House “So transformative and empathetic. Enthralling, sometimes heartbreaking, more often funny. Deeply moving.— San Francisco Examiner About the Show Based on conversations and interviews from the South Bronx housing projects courtyards, Refugee Safe Houses on the Northern Border with Canada, and travels along the Southwestern Border and into Mexico. Eleven monologues of people who live on or across borders both geographic and cultural, an intimate, raw, poignant, funny look at the borders we all negotiate in our everyday lives.
