Experience the play that has moved audiences around the world! The Afterlife tells the story of two teenagers--Chuy, who dies by violence, and Crystal, who dies by suicide, who meet and fall in love in the afterlife, a place between the living and the dead. Together they look back on their lives, seeing the beauty of the world left behind. Renowned author Gary Soto has created a profound theatre experience that mixes humor and pathos to open the door for healing and connection, making us each understand our true value in the world. Cast talkback after each show.
--The Afterlife showed me how my life would have been if I made certain decisions. I learned that people just want to get away from their pain, not their life. This play opened me up and finally made me realize what I used to avoid…happiness. -Sequoia High School Student
