About THE COURTROOM
A Re-Enactment of Deportation Proceedings

An intimate encounter with our nation’s immigration court system, The Courtroom follows Elizabeth Keathley, an immigrant from the Philippines who was married to a U.S. Citizen came to this country in 2004 on a K3 Visa. After inadvertently registering to vote at the DMV in Bloomington, IL, receiving a voter registration card in the mail, and voting, her removal proceedings were set in motion. Her case began in Immigration Court and was eventually heard by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

The Courtroom is performed entirely verbatim from court transcripts.

Running time: 85 minutes with no intermission

*Access is important to us, and we are committed that no one will be turned away from a performance. If ticket price is a barrier to you, please reach out to us at info@waterwell.org.
