Compassion Plays Production of Wheels

  • Maxwell House 55 S Grand Ave Pasadena, CA, 91105 United States

Take advantage of a great upcoming opportunity to see a Compassion Plays performance of Wheels by Peter Howard from 6-8pm on Wednesday, November 19. There will be a reception starting at 6pm, with the play beginning at 6:30pm.

Wheels explores immigration, xenophobia and the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship through the eyes of Oscar, a 15 and 1/2 year old Salvadoran-American youth and the people he encounters on his first journey through the maze of the DMV.

Wheels tells the story of Oscar's first steps toward independence, as he steps off the bus and into the Department of Motor Vehicles. In pursuit of his learner's permit and ultimately his driver's license, Oscar encounters a range of perspectives on freedom, mobility, and the dreams and realities associated with U.S. citizenship.
