Trial By Jury: A Case of Deportation

Produced by Kyle Bowser

 

Location: The Broad Stage - Main Stage

This participatory theater program examines the conflicting mandates of contemporary immigration policy and the precepts of constitutional freedoms.  Should cherished rights and liberties be extended to non-citizens residing in the United States, and if so, do those rights supersede the ideological imperatives of political power?  A short film dramatizing a deportation trial is followed by a live audience debate about the case and its underlying issues.  Ultimately, the audience votes to affirm or renounce existing immigration policy.
