        Juana in a Million

Juana in a Million

A show to change the way you see the world. Inspired by true stories of immigrants in the UK, Juana in a Million is the story of a young Mexican woman who arrives in London, armed with a suitcase of clothes, dreaming of love, success and happiness. In a virtuoso physical performance by award-winning Mexican actress Vicky Araico Casas, Juana's story becomes a heart-breaking, hilarious and moving tale of survival, strength and hope. Directed by award-winning Nir Paldi of theatre Ad Infinitum, Juana will make you think and cry and laugh.
