Robert Asencio will be reading in "The Detention Lottery" by Margaret O'Donnell a new play from the Hollins Playwright's Lab Reading Festival. Live on Zoom! Robert will be playing the roles of Jose Miguel Suarez & Edwin Lopez. Two detainees being held in an Immigration detention center. Who defend themselves against deportation as best they can in court, without preparation. 

Play Synopsis: 

"Step behind the locked doors of an immigrant detention center. Its 2018. Deportation, threats of deportation, the official policy of separating children from their parents, and "zero tolerance" meant immigration detention centers were bulging with detainees.  Mere statistics about the scope of the injustice and inhumanity cannot really help Americans understand what was being done in their names. The audience enters a U.S. immigration detention center courtroom to observe judges handing down, in the words of one immigration judge, life and death decisions in a traffic court setting. Since 2018, little has changed."
