About Alma


Written by Benjamin Benne

Directed by AZ Espinoza

October 4-20, 2024

Alma is a working mom and undocumented immigrant from Mexico; she has single handedly raised her daughter, Angel, on tough love, home-cooked comida, and lots of prayers. A sacrifice from Alma’s past weighs heavy on their present; will the American Dream cost them a life together? Set in the uncertainty of 2016, Alma is a mother daughter story of heritage, healing, and hope.

Land Acknowledgement

Passage Theatre Company would like to acknowledge that the Mill Hill Playhouse sits on the traditional land of the Lenni-Lenape tribe past and present, and we honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us to where we are today, and join us in our commitment to learning how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit as well.
