Into the Beautiful North by Karen Zacarías
A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere
Based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize Finalist Luis Alberto Urrea
Directed by Daniel Jáquez and Olga Sanchez

Milagro presents Into the Beautiful North — a hip, heroic comedy that blends The Magnificent Seven and American pop culture with modern Mexican experiences. Inspired by the classic film, Nayeli and her two friends journey north to Los Yunaites in search of her father and seven strong men to save their small Mexican village of Tres Camarones, which is currently under threat of narco-traficantes and extinction. This new play, commissioned by Milagro, is written by Karen Zacarías, award-winning playwright of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and Mariela in the Desert, and is based on the novel Into the Beautiful North by Pulitzer Prize Finalist Luis Alberto Urrea.
