Home (Short Play)

Written by: Lisa Jacobs

Logline: The civil war in Syria has led to the world’s biggest refugee crisis since WWII.  Home is a short play performed by actors portraying refugees who tell us a story of love.  This story is inspired by some of Shakespeare’s popular and lesser known characters and works, and sets out to show how, in the face of mounting racism and xenophobia, only love, tolerance and unity can serve humanity.
