Cristina Henríquez

Cristina Henríquez’s The Book of Unknown Americans follows the journeys of two families—one Panamanian, one Mexican—from Latin America to their adopted homeland of the United States. At its heart, though, this is a love story, one by turns suspenseful and wry. Henríquez returns to the CHF stage with a story that offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be American. She is joined in conversation by Coya Paz, artistic director of Free Street Theater.
