Gitana Productions presents
New World, written by Lee Patton Chiles, is a compelling original one-act play based on interviews with women refugees from Afghanistan, Bosnia, and the Congo. You will hear how they came to St. Louis with hope to create a new world by healing their old-world wounds. Q&A with community leaders, cast, and Gitana staff will follow each performance. This is the third remount of the play by popular demand.

Audience members say:
"The heartbreaking portrayals were electrifying, informative and penetrating.
The language, movements and actions were so descriptive."
"I am moved to help refugees in any way that I can now that I know their stories!"
