Sanctuary City

Pasadena Playhouse - September 14, 2022 through October 09, 2022

From Pulitzer Prize-winner Martyna Majok (Cost of Living) comes an exhilarating, unforgettable love story of two life-long friends, their tenuous grip on an uncertain future, and finding sanctuary among those closest to them. Profoundly human and undeniably universal, it begs the question: what would you do for love, and how much do we owe to one another?Recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award and Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Theater Development Grant, Sanctuary City makes for a compelling contemporary drama that has enigmatic characters, rising intensity, vigorous argumentation, timely themes, and an underlying sense of humor and compassion. (amNY) Elysa Gardner of New York Stage Review says, Majok has given us something that transcends politics as only the best and most humane art can.
