Synopsis of 1000 MILES:

A young woman, Solis, makes it to The City from 1000 Miles Across the Sea, in search of opportunity and family. She is about to be sent back home by The City's newly set immigration/refugee laws, when she finds work at a clock shop. The clock shop's owner, Peter, is the hipster son of immigrants (older wave of immigrants). He is both cautious and compassionate toward Solis, who he takes in and helps. But, Peter and his brother, Mark, hold secrets about their past, their parents, and The City's history that could very well affect the lives of everyone around them, including Solis, and the very fabric of their "homeland." At its center - this play is about immigration, surveillance, and power - who has it, who doesn't.





Solis: Female, late 20's, but very mature. Her late 20's are like another woman's 40's. She's from 1000 Miles Across the Sea, an immigrant to The City.


Viola: Female, 30's. Bartender. An earlier migrant to The City from 1000 Miles Across the Sea.


Mark: Male, mid/late 30's. Son of migrants from the Southwest Mountain. Businessman. Sleek and trim.


Peter: Male, 30. Mark's younger brother. Bit of a hipster.


Maria: 40's. Bar 'owner.' Early migrant from the Southwest Mountain.


Boy: Male, under 10 years old. Citizen of The City (later called The Citadel).
