Sanctuary City (Regional, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park-Shelterhouse Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

Sanctuary City



How far would you go to help a friend, and what would you be willing to risk? In this strikingly intimate play, two young people become one another’s sanctuaries as the children of U.S. immigrants in the wake of 9/11. Through years of late-night conversations, they see each other through adolescence and fight to find their place in the world. When G becomes a naturalized citizen, she finds a way to help B stay in the country legally. But what begins as a simple choice becomes far more complicated, and G and B’s relationship teeters on the brink of falling apart.

This searing new play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Martyna Majok is an unconventional love story that’s as timely as it is unforgettable.

Directed by Kareem Fahmy

Featuring Jordan Anthony Arredondo, Debo Balogun, and Amira Danan
