BY NAOMI WALLACE

Directed by Matt Ripa

In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border.  But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.

Content warning: This play contains adult content including acts of violence, guns, partial nudity, simulated sexual activity/assault, simulated masturbation, racist, xenophobic, homophobic and misogynist language. Ally recommends this for ages 16 and up.

About Ally Theatre Company

Ally Theatre Company produces theatre designed to engage audiences through acknowledging and confronting systemic oppression in America. 

We aim to join the vital conversations -- sparked by generations of thinkers, writers, performers, and activists who paved the way before us -- conversations that continue each and every day -- by: 

-Placing underrepresented populations at the front and center of our narratives and our organization; 
-Forming alliances with individuals and organizations who share a similar mission;  
-Producing new theatrical works making their world, national, or local premieres; and
-Tackling existing theatrical works that forward the conversation. 

In doing so, we hope to play a small part in creating the space and opportunity needed to form new traditions and conversations, while steadily inching toward the eradication of systemic violence, prejudice, and racism in our society.
