Encore Michigan

Theatre NOVA opens ‘Sanctuary City’ 11/4-27

Show Announcement November 01, 2022

ANN ARBOR, MI–B and G are dreamers/Sweethearts/High school friends negotiating the broken promise of safety and the weight of responsibility in the so-called sanctuary city of Newark, NJ.


When B learns that his mother will return to her country of origin, these two young people must fight like hell to establish a place for themselves and each other in America. “I have rarely seen a play that so effectively embodies the way external forces – in this case, immigration policies in the United States – distort the inner lives of actual humans. What love is, and can ever mean, is lost in the muddle between the heart and the law.” – New York Times.

November 4-27, 2022     (Single tickets: $22)

Directed by Carla Milarch. Featuring Jose Martinez-Chavarria*Marie Muhammad, and Mike Sandusky (DJ Whittington’s Kool Kat).

Week of 11/28/2022
