WomanKraft’s multi-media theater production of “The Lost Illegal” is a “contemporary drama/comedy set in Tucson, exploring complex human relationships created by, and resulting from, Mexican-American Border policies.”
The plot below of “The Lost Illegal”, an original, new play by Linn Lane and directed by Gayle Swanbeck– “illustrates the difficulty we face in living with the laws we make.”
Lesbian elders Julia and Allie have already paid their personal and political dues; the couple are both proud of, and frightened by their granddaughter Tanya, who is walking a familiar path. During a stint in jail Tanya meets Joe (a homeless activist) and Inez (the lost illegal) who has her own reasons for being in the US.
The complicated relationship between these five brings them into contact with Roger, the Arizona ICE officer in his various authoritarian guises

Sounds like a very contemporary play especially as it deals with humans affected by the Mexican-US border and immigration issues. And my husband and I are personally acquainted with actor Vic, who also performs in Borderlands Theater‘s “A Tucson Pastorela” every year.
