The world premiere of The Courthouse, a play created from actual transcripts of deportation hearings, played performances at Fordham University Law School on January 23 and 26 and the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse on January 24 and 25. The production recently added three performances to its run; the show will now play St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery January 30 and the Judson Memorial Church January 31 and February 1.

Billed as “a re-enactment of deportation proceedings to be performed in active legal spaces,” The Courtroom is performed entirely verbatim from court transcripts. The production is arranged by Arian Moayed, directed by Lee Sunday Evans, and features Ruthie Ann Miles, Kathleen Chalfant, Happy Anderson, Michael Braun, Hanna Cheek, Michael Bryan French, Mick Hilgers, Linda Powell, and Kristin Villanueva. Tickets are free and available at Waterwell.org.
