In partnership with the Center for Survivors of Torture and War Trauma
A one-act play about three refugee women from Afghanistan, Bosnia and the Republic of the Congo. They come to St. Louis where they hope to create a new world by healing their old world wounds.
The performances of actors Jeanitta Perkins, Jessica Alvarado and Sheri Gonzalez are stunning and moving. Audience members at both venues demonstrated their feelings for this play with standing ovations. Here are two responses that reflect the general comments made about the play:
"We see Bosnian and Afghan women all the time and have no idea what they have been through and how hard it is for them to leave one world and come to another. The 3 actresses were unbelievable in their portrayal of these women. Most of the people sitting next to me were so moved that they wanted to know what they could do to help, to be more supportive to act now that they knew the truth...what an education!"
"Thank you for that opportunity! It really changed my mind on different aspects regarding refugees. The New World presentation… Oh my gosh… I was speechless. I was aware about refugees problems but I was not that aware of their traumas. I saw another dimension of their problem, much deeper."
