No Number Home is about the fear and turmoil that engulfs a small colony of seven Mexican immigrant families — farm workers and their American children – when one of their own goes AWOL from the Army during WWII.

The year is 1944. The place: A colony cluster on the plain in Southeastern Colorado.

Marcos and Carmen are determined to protect their family while hopefully helping their neighbors when the MPs come looking for AWOL Jesus Rodriguez. However, they are fearful of getting caught up in the trouble and possibly deported to Mexico.


No Number Home is a brand new play by local playwright Tencha Avila. We are looking for actors who will also participate in the development process of this new script. In addition to the normal rehearsal and performance schedule, we will be having monthly read-throughs to aid with the new play development process.
