26 Miles kicks off Teatro Vista’s 20th anniversary celebration and it’s a worthy addition to their eclectic and challenging repertoire." —


An ’83 Buick Regal may be an unlikely place to find out what family really means, but when Beatriz and her estranged daughter head west on a spontaneous cross–country road trip, neither is prepared for what lies ahead. 26 Miles reminds us that sometimes all it takes to find yourself is the power of family … and a herd of buffalo.
