An epic hurricane threatens Miami. A mother and daughter ready themselves for the storm as Abuela takes shelter in a world of memory, music, and magic. A powerful tale of family and forgiveness, El Huracán reveals what can be rebuilt in the aftermath of life’s most devastating tempests––and what can never be replaced.

Join Yale Rep, along with community partners Arte, Inc, and Junta for Progressive Action, in a discussion of the ongoing, cross-generational effects of climate change on the Latinx community and other themes from the production. Facilitated by David Mendizábal, Artistic Producer of The Sol Project.
