The topic of US immigration law provokes passionate conversations. This book engages directly with these pressing debates and begins with a straightforward question: How has contemporary American theatre presented so-called undocumented immigrants? Juxtaposing the work of artists such as Josefina LA³pez, Genny Lim, Arthur Miller, Ntare Mwine, Octavio Solis, and Culture Clash, Guterman highlights how an express attention to legal labels enriches our studies of identity.
