Produced by CSUDH’s Department of Theatre and Dance, and directed by Theatre Arts faculty member Bill DeLuca, “Undocumented” tells the story of Amalia Portilla, a school principal who faces political consequences when her superintendent demands that she turn over the name of an undocumented worker she has protected. Portilla stands to lose not only her LatinX Studies Program, but her job as well.
“The play reflects the American schizophrenia over immigration that not only veers between acceptance and exclusion, but also divides and redefines our country,” said DeLuca.
The play is intended for a mature audience. Tickets are $18 for general admission, and $13 for students and senior citizens. Group rates are available.
