at Theatre Row - The Lion Theatre

A dynamic and, at times, disturbing multimedia performance, Sanctuary focuses primarily on three female characters: a mother bombarded by television broadcasts of destruction and death, a detached war correspondent, and a POW in Kosovo.

All three are deeply affected by the brutality and senselessness of war. Each seeks refuge, sanctuary, from its violence.

Incorporating writings from Rumi's poetry to soldiers’ emails, Sanctuary follows the intransigence of war throughout history. A theme emerges: one war is like another, as seen in the compelling use of video footage from conflicts spanning the last century.

Can we possibly break the cycle? Yes.
