Portland Theater Festival’s 2023 Season presents Sanctuary City!

Come see diverse and inclusive theater in Portland. Housed in the historic The Hill Arts, Sanctuary City will be playing from August 17th through September 3rd. Tickets are pay-what-you-wish and go fast so be sure to reserve your tickets early!

About the play:
In post-9/11 Newark, NJ, two teenagers who were brought to America as children become one another’s sanctuaries from harsh circumstances. When G becomes naturalized, she and B hatch a plan to marry so that he may legally remain in the country and pursue the future he imagines for his life. But as time hurtles on and complications mount, the young friends find that this act challenges and fractures the closest relationship either has ever had.
