Wednesday, September 8 - Friday, October 15Free
La Maleta (The Suitcase) is the story of Roca, a ten-year-old refugee who escapes her native Colombia clutching her suitcase – inside which she believes her grandmother is hiding. Struggling to adapt to a new city, a new school and a new way of life, Roca befriends Paz, a boy with a secret who is being bullied by their classmates.
Opening the suitcase leads them to embark on an adventure where Roca finds the courage, hope and strength to adapt to her new home.
Incorporating both Spanish and English, this production will engage students’ imaginations and provide insight into what a new student who doesn’t speak their language might be feeling and thinking.
