As Juan José feverishly studies for his citizenship exam, his obsession to pass takes him on a fantastical odyssey through U.S. history guided by a handful of unsung citizens who made courageous choices in some of the country’s toughest times. American Night: The Ballad of Juan José is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and truth.

Originally commissioned by The Oregon Shakespeare Festival for American Revolutions: The United States History Cycle.
Developed by Culture Clash & Jo Bonney.
