Standing against anti-immigrant legislation with “God’s Flea”

New Carpa Theater Company has selected Diane Lefer’s play “God’s Flea,” for inclusion in “Performing 1070: A Short-Play Festival”, on March 30, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Annual Border Justice Conference at ASU West, and on March 31, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., on the House lawn of the Arizona State Capitol (provided Sen. Russell Pearce doesn’t pass a new law between now and then banning the project). The play (inspired by the classic Colombian short story, En la diestra de Dios Padre by Tomás Carrasquilla Naranjo) was  commissioned by Fernando Castro and Grupo Ta’Yer and workshopped at the Frida Kahlo Theater in Los Angeles under the inspired direction of Rubén Amavizca-Murúa.
