We are writing to you today about a very limited engagement of a fantastic play, Sanctuary, by Susanne Sulby, which is billed as a “powerful one-woman show about the universal experience of war across the centuries” and is a play about the impact of war on women.
It is currently playing here in New York off-Broadway until January 23rd at the Lion Theatre (410 W. 42nd Street).
In her own words, Sulby felt compelled to write this play because she could not keep quiet any longer.
This project began for me many years ago when I was watching coverage of the conflict in Serbo-Croatia. As it unfolded, I was shocked and appalled. I couldn’t believe that after the tragedy of the Nazi Holocoust the world could still tolerate ’Ethnic Cleansing.’ I couldn’t understand how this could be happening.
Last year, this 5-star play ran in Washington, D.C. to rave reviews:
She has created a memorable exploration of what war does to us, and why peace matters. Thank you, Susanne Sulby, for your remarkable solo performance.–DC Metro Theater Arts
From my first viewing of “Sanctuary,” a powerful one-woman show about the universal experience of war across the centuries, I knew this was a different kind of theatre experience.–R. Albu, Go! Magazine
