"A Theater Illuminates an Immigration Battlefield" By LAWRENCE DOWNES

Can a play called “What Killed Marcelo Lucero?” rescue suburban Long Island from its immigration agonies?
That would be a startling thing to promise, especially if you are a tiny, unknown theater company in Suffolk County and your play does little more than re-enact news events that Long Islanders have argued over to the point of raw exhaustion, if not despair.
The play’s author and director, Margarita Espada, makes no promises, slyly warning in advance that she is offering no answers, no remedies, not even an ending.
But even so, the play somehow succeeds where so many speeches and editorials fail. It points, at least, to where deeper understanding might lie and how people might get there together.
