ILC Theater Performs “Arriving” and “Lost in Translation” March 29 & 30

Free performances highlight the immigrant experience: 1:30 p.m. March 29 and 10:30 a.m. March 30, Malden Public Library, 36 Salem St. Two free performances will be staged by students in The Immigrant Learning Center Theater Class at the Malden Public Library in the Maccario Room. On March 29, they will perform “Arriving,” and on March 30, they will perform “Lost in Translation.” Arriving explores the process of arriving to the United States as an immigrant through a series of vignettes. Lost in Translation is a compilation of misunderstandings caused by language barriers, which can be simultaneously funny and challenging. Both performances are drawn from the students’ life experiences. The performers are comprised of adult students from The Immigrant Learning Center Inc. who reside in Malden and surrounding communities. Both groups are directed and taught by The ILC teacher Sally Nobinger. The Immigrant Learning Center Theater Class began in 2003 to help immigrants improve their English skills through writing and performing plays.
