Home/Land

Chicago’s award-winning Albany Park Theater Project (APTP*) comes to Oakton’s stage, sharing stories of resilience, heroism, love, and hope—the epic quests of immigrant families striving to stay together and build a better life in the land they’ve come to call home. Join the directors and teen ensemble members after the show to explore how Home/Land combines ethnography, community building, and performance.

Presentation and discussion: 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Faculty Professional Development team, Human Resources, and the Performing Arts at Oakton.
