CDF Partners to Facilitate “Third Country” Post Show Discussions

on September 19 | in News/Updates | by | with No Comments

CDF is pleased to be working with Horizon Theatre and Welcoming America to host One World, One Region, One Home Post-Show Discussions.  Following each performance Horizon’s new play Third Country, there will be a facilitated post-show discussion to allow audiences to reflect on the play, share their own experiences, talk with some of the people who inspired the play, and learn more about refugees in Georgia.  Discussions will be led by facilitators from Welcoming America and CDF. A special guest respondent from Clarkston or a refugee services organization will also be part of each discussion. The post-show discussions are sponsored in part by One Region, an initiative of The Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta.

About Third Country

 

Nura, a refugee, clings to her soccer ball like a lifeline as she meets Sasha, a resettlement worker who is her guide to a strange new home in a small Southern town. But the welcome is mixed in this community reeling from a flood of newcomers—all refugees from around the world. A community meeting divides the town, and a soccer field becomes the battleground for its future.Will longtime residents and these eager new Americans learn to work together to find peace?

Inspired by real life events in nearby Clarkston, Georgia, playwright Suehyla El-Attar (Horizon’s The Perfect Prayer) uses her signature wit and optimism to look at a community in transition, and what happens when we must redefine and share our homes. A poignant new play from our own changing backyard.
