    A compelling look at the curtains — and walls — that divide us. Tackling some of today’s most contentious topics, the play finds a way to make them both poignant and personal. This tragicomedy of misunderstanding tells the story of Cándido and América, two undocumented immigrants from Mexico. Homeless and sleeping outside in Topanga Canyon, the two find their lives intersecting unexpectedly with those of residents in a nearby gated community. Adapted from T.C. Boyle’s acclaimed 1995 novel, The Tortilla Curtain touches on issues of class, immigration, xenophobia, poverty, and environmental destruction.
