On the streets of Guatemala City, gang members were Edgar’s only family. But he dreamed of a different future. To leave the gang was a death sentence. Coming to the USA was his last hope.

This acclaimed Off Broadway play from Houses on the Moon Theater Company, crafted entirely from immigration court transcripts, interviews, and letters, tells the gripping true story of 14 year old Edgar Chocoy and his legal struggle to be allowed to stay in the United States.

The performance runs one hour, followed by post show discussion with the creative team and immigration and human rights experts.
