How to Melt ICE
This powerful new play draws on Rojas' own experience as a "Dreamer" and immigration rights activist and explores the generational divide between those who came to the U.S. as children and those that carried them here in search of a better life. Set between 2017 and 2019, when the undocumented were increasingly at risk--even DACA recipients were not safe, the play's characters must navigate a minefield of "do's" and "don'ts" in every relationship, and love is the casualty. A chorus of three Tias guide the audience on this journey, with their own brand of dark humor.
Developed in NPTC's Women's Work LAB, the play received a grant from the prestigious NYC Women's Fund for this premiere staging.
