American Victory inspires a Play!
on December 16, 2011
I was so inspired by this book that I have put into a motion a play version of it. Arizona State University will be producing the play, adapted by graduate student Jose Zarate, and directed by myself, Guillermo Reyes, in March 2012. It's a play that belongs in Arizona. While Henry Cejudo was winning the gold for the U.S., folks back in Arizona were debating on whether or not to take away U.S. citizenship from kids like him---you know "anchor babies." The debate reached all the way to the legislature. State Senate leader Russell Pearce seriously proposed it, and then the voters in his district recalled him! Who's the patriot in this story?
