The Department of Theatre and Drama presents the play 14, written and directed, by Assistant Professor José Casas.

14 is inspired by a true-life event in which a smuggler abandoned 30 Mexicans crossing the desert near Yuma, AZ, resulting in 14 dying of dehydration. The play is based on interviews and public accounts of Arizonans and their different attitudes towards the contemporary issues of undocumented immigration.

There will be a talkback with cast members and community members at the end of the performance. A reception will follow in the Henderson Room located in the Michigan League.

The performance is free -- no tickets required.

IRWG and our Colonialism, Race, & Sexualities Initiative (CRSI) are cosponsors.
