For You New Yorkers: Undocumented



Joe's Pub

November 19

Ticket Price: $20.00 - $50.00

Doors at 1:30PM
Show at 2PM


En Garde Arts has commissioned Chilean/Costa Rican-American playwright Andrea Thome, Puerto Rican director José Zayas with music by Sinuhe Padilla Isunza to craft a series of developmental readings drawn verbatim from interviews with the undocumented. What is it like for the people who have settled here, yet often must keep their presence hidden? Partnering with community organizations that serve undocumented immigrants, we aim to go beyond the limited narrative that is too often presented by our media and politicians. What are the many reasons they’ve come, and what are their lives like now? Together, they question: where can we call home?  These interviews will be performed by actors to preserve the anonymity of the participants.  A panel discussion will follow.
