It is a story that has tragically played out in real-life far too often—a group of immigrants sets out in search of a better life in the United States only to have their journey of hope end in tragedy. That’s the premise of playwright Silvia Gonzalez’s Boxcar, which will be performed in the Little Theatre at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

The final performance for Boxcar is tonight at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.

The play recounts the story of five immigrants who are urged by their coyote to board a boxcar to the United States. Their journey takes a harrowing twist when the boxcar develops mechanical problems and the immigrants are left trapped inside. The play explores the passion, dreams and adversity that surround immigrants as they seek their chance at the American Dream.

This production is an official entry into the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) and will be performed at San Jacinto College South-Houston as part of the KCACTF at 10 a.m., Saturday, October 23.

For more information call 361-593-3401.
