SANCTUARY CITY by Martyna Majok
Michigan Premiere

B and G are DREAMers/Lovers/High school friends negotiating the broken promise of safety and the weight of responsibility in the so-called sanctuary city of Newark. When B learns that his mother will return to her country of origin, these two young people must fight like hell to establish a place for themselves and each other in America. “I have rarely seen a play that so effectively embodies the way external forces - in this case, immigration policies in the United States - distort the inner lives of actual humans. What love is, and can ever mean, is lost in the muddle between the heart and the law.” - New York Times. Directed by Carla Milarch, Sanctuary City by Martyna Majok features Marie Muhammad, Jose Martinez-Chavarria, and Mike Sandusky.
