The Courtroom

The Courtroom returns for monthly performances at civic venues in NYC!

Performed in Active Legal Spaces

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.
