Cell, an immigration story, returns to the ACT stage at the Adult Center for a limited three performance run, October 4, 5 at 7 pm and October 6 at 2 pm. Written by NYC playwright Cassandra Medley and performed nationally by an all-Black cast Cell was performed last year in Hood River with an all-White cast. The return of Cell to the ACT stage is made possible by a grant from the Salvador Fund of the Community Gorge Foundation.

The story, which follows three women workers at an immigration center, was expanded by Ms. Melody to include a male supervision. This year’s production will be a staged performance with an all Hispanic cast. Viviana Rafalowski as Rosa, Sonia Marquez as Marta, Leti Valle as Jenny and Juan Reyes as Leo. Following each performance, there will be a community talk-back with the playwright, actors and the director, Gary Young, allowing for an exploration into immigration issues in light of the play and the current national situation.

Tickets are $10 at the door, $20 for group and family tickets with proceeds supporting Meals on Wheels and the programs of the Hood River Valley Adult Center.
