Featuring Jacqueline Antaramian

New York Theatre Workshop
3rd Floor Rehearsal Studio
83 East 4th Street

They came from Damascus, from Halab, from Banias where the bombs fall day and night and the wounded children look like sleeping angels. Now they live in camps and abandoned buildings in Lebanon or Jordan. Now Syria is just a distant memory, a home forever lost. First produced at the New Vic in London, this timely play explores the crisis in Syria through the eyes of its refugees.

Please join us for refreshments after the reading, courtesy of our sponsor, Lagunitas Brewing Company and Manousheh.

Free. Seating is limited. Please reserve your seat: RSVP@noortheatre.org.
