Gum-Dip Theatre
Community Theatre

Devised by Katie Beck
Co-devised by Ryan Cash, Elsa Bartletta Gonzalez, Bridgett Martinez, Angie Perez, Liz Schmidt, and Neema Tamang.

Show Description:
Is freedom made by you or given by others? Gum-Dip Theatre's Denied Admission examines the boundaries of personal liberty in a new play based on credible fear interviews of asylum seekers who crossed the southern U.S. border. This new work will explore the rooms of the legal system, the streets of the Northern Triangle, and the hearts of those seeking a home.

Each performance will be followed by a 30-minute talkback with a professional or advocate currently working with asylum seekers. Please check back as the speakers are scheduled.
