Who do we let in? This simple question resonates across the entirety of our lives today, ranging in scale from family feuds to geopolitical crises. In The Refugees, written and directed by Stephen Kaliski, a jaded queen and her activist children struggle to answer it, each side fiercely opposed over whether their prosperous realm should offer asylum to masses of immigrants displaced by climate change.
Set in an imagined world that blends Ancient Greek myth with the realities of today, The Refugees electrifies one of the most urgent issues of our time with humor, humanity, and a passionate appeal to the power of civic engagement.
For this production, Adjusted Realists will be partnering with local refugee organizations to provide audiences education about current global crises, invite volunteer opportunities, and raise funds to support their most urgent initiatives.
