Opening night is one week from today for Girl Be Heard's DISPLACED at the Nuyroican Poets Café (236 East 3rd Street, New York, NY).

Through personal stories and those shared with Girl Be Heard company members from girls living in refugee camps abroad, the cast explores the injustices that make home such a fleeting dream for many. disPLACEd comes at a critical time for both the US and communities abroad, as homelessness and displacement are the highest they've been in decades. While disPLACEd questions the conflicts that divide us, it also lifts up the voices of countless young women and their families who yearn for peace and a safe place to live.

Written and performed by Emilie Clark, Melanie David, Kayla Irizarry, Noura Boustany Jost, Veronica Marks, Noelia Mann, Jai Raphael, Tiff Roma, Jackie Torres and Bleu Zephra.
