WAM Theatre’s Fresh Takes new play series comes to the Mount — In the back office of a small New England airport, TSA agent Hank is training new employee Chloe on the day a new law commonly known as ‘The Muslim Ban’ is suddenly enacted.

When Jana arrives on a flight from the Middle East, they all become entangled in the chaotic fallout from this new government mandate. In a rapidly shifting political landscape, this play questions who protects protecting our and from whom.

“Port of Entry takes American citizens inside the back offices of the immigration system, a place where officials navigate political policy through a web of bureaucracy and subjective opinion, on a heightened day early in the Trump Presidency when Muslims were scapegoated. Lest we should forget.” — Talya Kingston, playwright

“I’m looking forward to again exploring Port of Entry with Talya and the talented cast. The play is honest and humorous at times, and its direct approach to prevalent complex issues is a welcomed challenge. Theater should leave us with questions.” –Amy Brentano, director
