“Students were one-hundred percent engaged by this performance.” — Barb Potocnik
La Maleta incorporates both Spanish and English to tell the story of Roca, a 10-year old refugee who leaves her native Colombia for North America, clutching only her suitcase — inside of which she believes her Grandmother is hiding. Struggling to adapt to a new city, a new language, a new school, and a new way of life, Roca befriends Paz, a boy who is an immigrant with many of the same struggles. Opening the suitcase leads to an adventure where Roca finds the courage, hope, and strength to adapt to her new home.
