The Refugees

Davidson, NC
United States
Doors at 1:30 PM, Show at 2:00 PM
 More Information

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In an imaginary city-state loosely based on ancient Greek myths, generational conflict erupts around how to handle the mass of desperate, uprooted migrants outside the city walls. Inspired by the current refugee crisis in southern Europe, and partially developed through on-the-ground faculty-student research, this play takes dead aim at climate change, xenophobia, and what it costs us to compromise our ideals.
