ABOUT

By David Lozano and Lee Trull • Directed by David Lozano
A co-production with Cara Mía Theatre Co.

DEMOCRATS. REPUBLICANS. ACTIVISM. POLITICS.
It’s all just another border to cross.

The world premiere of DTC’s collaboration with Cara Mía Theatre Co., Deferred Action focuses on Javier Mejía, one of the immigrants known as Dreamers who arrived in the USA as an undocumented minor. Now, after years in the States, he finds himself caught in the tangle of existing immigration laws, new presidential policies and the harsh reality of living in the shadows. Javier hopes that temporary administrative mechanisms like Deferred Action will be the answer to his dilemma. But will hope be snatched away? Can politicians who say they are the Dreamers’ friends be trusted? Deferred Action follows the lives, loopholes, and dangers of those who dare to dream. Contains mature themes which include the use of drugs and theatrical semi-automatic gun shots, and strong language in English and Spanish.  Shows, dates, times, prices, venues, and cast members subject to change.

I, a deferred action student feel so strong about this. I was a Project discovery student as well for the 2014-2015 season. I just graduated from high school this year, and would like to know when are the auditions for this production?
