A bit about the piece in progress:
"A community can be measured by the questions its theater asks" - Former Guthrie Artistic Director, Liviu Ciulei
The Guthrie Theater has commissioned playwright and American Records’ founding CEO KJ Sanchez to create a documentary play about refugees, immigrants and support or opposition of their resettlement in the Twin Cities.
Based on extensive interviews with a multitude of unheard voices, Sanchez will construct a script to pose critical questions: who are we as Americans as defined by how we accept or refuse refuge to immigrants? What are the risks? What are the gains? Who are these refugees and why do they come to us for help? How is immigration in Minnesota different or the same today as it was decades ago?
The Guthrie Theater is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in all areas of our work, including the casting of our plays. We seek to hire actors who reflect our world to tell the stories we put onstage, and therefore strongly encourage people of underrepresented groups and diverse backgrounds to audition.
