Join IRIS- Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services as we team up with the Yale Rep to celebrate New Haven's immigrants achieving U.S. citizenship. You are invited to the Saturday, October 6th performance of American Night: The Ballad of Juan José. Described by the LA Times as "fast-paced, gleeful, and sly," American Night is a new play by writer and performer Richard Montoya.
The play follows a young man whose obsession to pass his citizenship exam "takes him on a fantastical odyssey through U.S. history... American Night: The Ballad of Juan José is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and truth." (from the Yale Rep website: http://www.yalerep.org/on_stage/2012-13/american.html.)
The Yale Rep has provided IRIS a group discount ticket rate. You can purchase tickets at the greatly reduced rate of $40; half of which is a tax-deductible donation to support IRIS's naturalization services for New Haven immigrants.
IRIS provides citizenship exam preparation, legal assistance for naturalization applications, and voter registration at naturalization ceremonies. Learn more about IRIS's work with immigrants at the Post-Show Conversation after the performance.
Come out and enjoy American Night with IRIS on October 6th!
