Tara’s Crossing


Acclaimed play about transgender woman seeking asylum in the U.S.

The remarkable odyssey of a transgender asylum seeker who flees persecution in Guyana, only to wind up incarcerated in U.S. Immigration detention, where she struggles to win her freedom. The play was inspired interviews with LGBT asylum seekers from around the globe.

It’s one of the first stage works ever to deal with the subject of political asylum for gay, lesbian, bi and transgender refugees, a remedy that has been available in the United States only since 1994.
