Immigrant Movement International will be presenting the bilingual and interactive play American Nightmare? Pesadilla Americana? tonight at 7 pm at 108-59 Roosevelt Ave in Corona, Queens. Written and acted by community members of Corona, the play will address some of the issues that many immigrant workers face:
“One day in the American Dream – Rosa is looking for work, but is her English good enough? Lucho has not been paid for three weeks, and Maria has serious problems at home with her son. Can they find a way out?”

Admission is free, and drinks and snacks will be served.
Immigrant Movement International also offers free classes every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30 to 9 pm, led by social theatre practitioner and facilitator Reka Polonyi and Chilean actress Montserrat Hernandez, for those who would like to practice their English through theatre. No theatre experience is necessary in order to participate, and the workshops will allow attendees to write and perform plays based on current issues and stories from the community.Tweet
