The Special Relationship
Attend this performance of The Special Relationship; a real-life transcript from ex-prisoners and immigration officers, showcasing the dark side of deportation and the horrors many face at a time when exile is imminent.
Why Watch The Special Relationship
How costly can a small mistake be? For immigrants the answer is huge. A small grain of cocaine, a forged cheque, a DEA sting or a single digit on a breathalyzer, all of these can be the reason for prison sentences or worse, deportation. In America, foreign nationals can be deported even after serving prison sentences. These are the real-life stories of individuals who had to face double the punishment, the pain of separation from loved ones and a life of struggle that follows after.
With meticulous research and brilliant writing, Hassan Abdulrazzak painstakingly interviewed dozens of people in order to take a peek behind the veils that cover the dark secrets of deportation and detention. Come and watch this performance that will make you question the world you live in and what can you do to change that.
