Elvira–The Immigration Play & Immigration Storytelling Workshop

Written by Jessica Carmona, and inspired by the life story of Elvira Arellano, this play offers up an imaginary encounter between a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Officer and Elvira on the day of her arrest in August 2007. As an interrogation unfolds, Elvira recounts her journey, from being the daughter of a farmer in Mexico to becoming Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.

This play will be followed by a workshop that will guide students and families in recording their own immigration stories.
