Following its run at the 18th annual New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC), performances will be offered Sept. 26 at 9 PM, Sept. 27 at 4 PM, Sept. 28 at 7:30 PM, Sept. 29 at 7 PM and Sept. 30 at 8 PM at the Soho Playhouse.   

Matthew Newton directs a cast of nine that includes Octavia Chavez-Richmond, Ashlee Danielle, Gary De Mattei, Alaina Fragoso, Corneilus Franklin, Jessica Maria Kight, Veda Kumarjiguda, Terra Mackintosh and Jihan McKenzie.

Inspired by true stories, No One Asked Me, according to press notes, "delves into the turbulent world of 'undocumented' students. Each year over 65,000 students without legal immigration papers graduate from high school in the U.S. Daniel, Alyssa, and Sophie are Bronx high school seniors hopeful for their future—yet without a social security number, they are unable to get college financial aid, legal employment and live in constant fear of being 'found out' and deported from the only home they have ever known. No One Asked Me is an insider's look at the intimate human struggle behind the current political debate in Congress around the Dream Act."

The play was awarded the 2014 FringeNYC Excellence Award for an ensemble production.

Other members of the creative team include set designer Yuki Nakase, sound designer Sam LaFrage, lighting designer Gertjan Houben, ACR Aileen Pare, stage manager Justice Longshore and graphic designer Kylie Holmes.
