About Misfits, America: Combining the magical realistic influences of Latin American literature with the Western genre popularized in the twentieth century, “Misfit, America” follows a diverse community led by an interracial couple as they are forced to protect a Native American teen from a brotherhood of supremacists. But before they can fight, they must become at peace with their past and learn to trust the future on each other. Living on the outskirts of the last free place in America, this band of misfits must prepare to give it all or run.
Is there funding for student productions?
