Watch an exquisite portrayal of old-fashioned romance in a tale that looks at the tumultuous life of a woman who lives across the border from her beloved family!

Why You Should Watch 72 Miles To Go...

Immigration is a social issue that has been brought into the limelight across a majority of the world’s developed nations. Although this plays a major role in writer Hilary Bettis’ 72 Miles To Go..., she insists that the underlying theme is love and not the hotly debated topic of immigration. Bettis is one of the most promising upcoming writers in Brooklyn. Her contribution to the wildly popular Emmy-nominated series The Americans earned her a 2018 Writers Guild of America Award nomination. She has developed several shows in association with Roundabout, Orlando Shakes PlayFest, and New York Theatre Workshop among others. Her short films B’Hurst and Iron Warehouse have won critical acclaim in film festivals around the world.

Like all good stories, Betts’s 72 Miles To Go… simply presents a narrative that has no ulterior motive or overt opinion, allowing the audience to draw their own conclusions about social issues from the show.

The Story

The story is set near the border that divides Nogales, Mexico, and Tucson, Arizona. There’s only 72 miles in between, but that is an excruciatingly large distance for a mother who lives in a shelter on the Mexican side. Her husband is American and her kids were born in America, and she will do everything it takes to reach them on the other side of the border. The story spans over 10 years, exploring the heartrending struggles and undying love shared by this family.
