The provocative new drama Cell wrestles eloquently with four of the most important issues of our time: race, class, incarceration and immigration. Its complex female characters include Rene, an African-American corrections officer who helps her sister Cerise and niece Gwen get jobs at a detention center for illegal immigrants waiting to be deported. But when young Gwen begins to feel empathy for the detainees, she finds herself at odds with the detention center’s rules against fraternization. See this moving examination of America’s prison industrial complex as it receives its world premiere from Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company at Tenth Avenue Arts Center.
