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 magical realm 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.

 

Although we could perform for only for two nights, we received great reviews!
