Add to Calendar 16-01-2012 20-01-2012 15 Times Square International Theater Festival Presents 'Sanctuary' by Susanne Sulby New York premiere of Susanne Sulby's one-woman, multiple-character play, "Sanctuary," which premiered in the Philadelphia Fringe in 2005. Inspired by her musings about the Serbo-Croatian civil wars in the early '90s, the multimedia show explores the futility of war and our need for sanctuary from it, focusing primarily on three female characters: a mother bombarded by endless television broadcasts of destruction and death, an emotionally detached war correspondent and a prisoner of war who both longs for her mother and is desperate at being separated from her own children. "Sanctuary" employs writings ranging from Rumi's thirteenth-century poetry to a soldier's email as it tracks the intransigence of war through history. A theme emerges: one war is like another; history repeats itself as the same mistakes are made again and again as scene in the compelling video footage from wars throughout history. Is it possible to break the cycle? Finally each of the three focal characters discover that peace is inevitable; the answer is love. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=101561 Theatre 500 true DD/MM/YYYY
