From the show:

Visionary theater-maker Kate Kremer takes aim at U.S. immigration and drone policy in this Kafka-esque roast of nonsense masquerading as justice. The piece -- featuring a series of fugitive, fragmentary scenes with four actors moving through many voices -- draws on recent transcripts of Supreme Court justices wrestling with how to police the borders of citizenship in order to deny rights that ought to be inalienable. As repeated brutalities become settled law, a whisper emerges: “If you think you’re the choir, you’re not.”

Dizzying, Relevant, Profound, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you like fresh work by young playwrights on important, current topics, well-staged and well-acted with excellent sound, costumes, lighting.

Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You wanna see great actors find structure amidst our inane immigration law

Don't see it if You're already raw fighting fascists

97
Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Profound

See it if you wish to see an absorbing, physically and intellectually challenging performance, around boundaries and the treatment of the other

Don't see it if You do not Believe justice is one of the highest virtues
