Controversy over the Mexican-American Studies program of Tucson Unified School District has been covered by local, state and national media over the past 12 years. Now it’s been chronicled in “Más,” a new docu-drama for the stage premiering in Phoenix on Saturday.

The play, developed through a partnership between Cultural Coalition and Arizona State University’s Performance in the Borderlands, is based on more than 400 pages of interviews with students and other community members who were impacted by the program and its elimination in 2012 as a result of passage in 2010 of an Arizona law targeting it.

In August, a U.S. District Court Judge found the law to be a violation of student’s rights and racially motivated.
