WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Help Wanted written and directed by Virginia McFerran is a one-act play telling the story of impoverished immigrants who come to Minnesota to seek a better life and to help their family in Mexico. Three actors playing multiple roles present scenes depicting life in Mexico, a dangerous border crossing, unionizing efforts, detention by the INS, and demonstrations in support of the hotel workers. This satirical piece demonstrates the plight of workers whose labor is needed in Minnesota, but who risk harsh treatment and inequities when trying to fill this need. This production is presented in English.
