Deferred Action, The Play Now Running In Dallas

David Lozano and Lee Trull are co-authors of the new play Deferred Action. Their play follows the story of "fictional Dallas Dreamer Javier Mejía, who must decide whether to take risky action or wait for the system to help him."

When they wrote the play, Lozano and Trull thought it would be a historical piece. As the Dallas News reports:

We assumed that immigration reform would be passed... This was supposed to be a past-tense play, and yet here we are with politicians saying terrible things about immigrants and surging in popularity....

You can see Deferred Action live at the Wyly Theater April 20-May 14. It is the second play in a planned trilogy by the Cara Mía Theatre Company about the Latino immigrant experience.
