Border Sweet Border is an inside view of an immigration hearing showcasing the reality of the “waiting game” that five of 11.5 million illegal humans go through. They will be taking us on their journey from different places, different turmoil, but always the same trial.
A journey is what makes us who we are. By presenting the narratives of these individuals we hope you understand why these 11.5 million people had to leave there and have to stay here. In this way, we hope to cut the metaphorical border between us and them, leading to a place where we can address the physical border.

What We Need:
This is where you come in! Without money all we have is ourselves. We need the funds to rent the Access Theater's Gallery Space. The Access was home to Measure for Measure, and their second stage will serve as the site of the trial. We also need props, costumes, and scenery to bring you, the audience right into the world of the courtroom!
