Play Looks at Undocumented Students

A new play on the status of undocumented college students opens tonight at Carolina Actors Studio Theater in Charlotte. It's mostly about Marie Gonzalez, a senior at Westminster College in Missouri. She came to the U.S. with her parents from Costa Rica when she was five with the intention of applying for permanent residency, but the family missed some crucial filing dates and her parents took voluntary deportation three years ago. WFAE's Simone Orendain spoke with Gonzalez on the day before she left for the Charlotte premier of "Limbo."
