The Big Deal: ‘Deferred Action’ Presented By Cara Mia Theatre Company

by Gila Espinoza 13 Sep 2017 8:31 AM

“Deferred Action,” written by David Lozano and Lee Trull, was a Cara Mía Theatre and Dallas Theater Center co-production in 2016. One year later, the production is Cara Mía’s first regional tour making stops in three different venues in North Texas, as well as outside of Texas.

Art&Seek’s Jerome Weeks sat down and talked with playwright Lozano and Cara Mia’s Jose Manuel Santoyo and discussed how this political moment makes the play even more timely and relevant.

“Deferred Action” centers around Javier, a young immigrant brought to the U.S. as minor and whose only home he has known is this country. Now the DREAMer finds himself caught up in the tangled-web of immigration law, politics, and the harsh realities of living in the shadows.  Enter to win tickets to see the stirring drama on September 29, at the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas.
