Dan is a phenomenal actor, masterfully portraying each character; you are going to LOVE this show and his brilliant performance!


Based on conversations along the Southwestern Border and into Mexico, in refugee Safe Houses on the Norther Border with Canada, and from the South Bronx housing projects in his old neighborhood, Hoyle's newest piece of "journalistic theatre" is his freshest and most urgent. 

Experience ten masterful monologues based on real people who live on or across borders geographic and cultural, sharing about their reality; an intimate, raw, funny, poignant performance. 

From the creator of other sensational solo shows: Tings Dey Happen, The Real Americans and Each and Every Thing.

For audiences 16+. Content Advisory: References to racism, gun violence, substance abuse, and homophobia.

Producers´ Note: We are VERY fortunate to include Dan Hoyle and his highly entertaining and poignant show in our line-up. With everything going on in the world regarding "borders," geographical or imagined, there couldn't be a more relevant play today with intimate stories that don't often get told in theatre.


“Fiendishly compelling...irresistibly watchable...the most engaging evening I’ve spent in a theater in a long time." Theatermania


"A master of his craft. Hoyle is one of our theatrical gems." - San Francisco Chronicle

“So transformative and empathetic. Enthralling, sometimes heartbreaking, more often funny. Deeply moving." - San Francisco Examiner

“Dan Hoyle’s brilliant portrayals are exactly what we need right now."

Cecilia Muñoz, immigration advocate and Domestic Policy Council Director in Obama White House


“Visionary. Seventy-five spellbinding minutes." - Broadway World
