See it if you'd like a real deportn/Homeld Sec case. You'll root for respondent! Actual transcripts used. USA oath is given; moving. A bit repetitive.
Don't see it if you want a more political case. Same idea in De Novo, w higher stakes (yg man seeks asylum, is deported, killed). Free tickets, nice church.
See it if You want to see an oddly intense and entertaining social studies class. Great actors bring what could be a dry transcript to life.
Don't see it if You have no interest in the law or legal proceedings or how this immigration case is so relevant to our society today.
"A verbatim performance of court transcripts...As the piece follows Elizabeth from one to another, what is most palpable is the suspense — how deeply invested the audience becomes in the future of this gentle woman...Elizabeth’s case begins during the George W. Bush administration and stretches into the Obama years, transcending party and thus more broadly implicating the nation."
