WMS Fall Play: Esperanza Rising, November 1 and 2

ESPERANZA RISING – Middle School Fall Play
Friday, November 1 at 7pm and Saturday, November 2 at 2pm at Wayland Middle School Theatre
Esperanza Ortega is a wealthy, young Mexican girl who has known nothing but a life of luxurious dresses, beautiful dolls, and her parents’ unconditional love on their ranch in Aguascalientes, Mexico. A string of devastating events turns Esperanza’s life upside down, forcing her to travel to the United States in search of a new life in the San Joaquin Valley in California.
This play is adapted by Lynne Alvarez from the book by Pam Munoz Ryan. Set in 1930 during the depression, Esperanza meets other immigrants as well as Okies from the Dustbowl. She is faced with discrimination as a Mexican in the United States. Through the love of her adopted family in her new home, Esperanza discovers her inner strength. She learns that it is possible to find happiness despite her circumstance.
