DREAMers. Love(r)s. Life-long friends. Negotiating the promise of safety and the weight of responsibility, they'll fight like hell to establish a place for themselves and each other in America. 2018 Pulitzer Prize winner, NYTW Usual Suspect and former 2050 Fellow Martyna Majok brings us an unforgettable story that asks what we're willing to sacrifice for someone we love. Rebecca Frecknall, director of the 2019 Olivier Award-winning Summer and Smoke, helms the highly anticipated production which returns to the stage after performances were halted in March 2020.

Streaming passes for Sanctuary City will be available for $30 for a 48-hour viewing window or $50 for a 96-hour viewing window. Passes are available now at nytw.org.

Sanctuary City is currently being performed at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NY, NY 10014). Presented by Special Arrangement with the Lucille Lortel Theatre Foundation.

The current cast of Sanctuary City includes Jasai Chase-Owens (The Tempest) as B, Sharlene Cruz (Mac Beth) as G and Julian Elijah Martinez (Network) as Henry.

Sanctuary City is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award and a Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Theater Development Grant. This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. Sanctuary City is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts.
