The production will begin at 7:30pm, and end in a talk-back with the cast.
Immigration attorney Margaret O’Donnell developed the script, and immigration attorneys will play the roles of attorneys, judges, ICE officers, and guards. Our goal is to promote greater understanding of our immigration enforcement system, and empower participants to stand up for immigrant protections and rights. The Detention Lottery provides an in-depth look the detention processes of ICE officers, and courtroom proceedings. During the performance, you (or your randomly selected fictional family member) may be “detained”, and have your merit for relief from deportation determined by an immigration judge. Get ready for an unique immersive and educational theatre experience.
Can’t make it November 8? Join the Nov 14th production at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, 7:00pm.
