Set in a rundown apartment in New York City, REFUGE tells the darkly funny and touching story of a young woman, Amy, forced to care for her younger brother and sister after her parents have abandoned the family and fled to Florida for a vacation from which they will never return.
The siblings are in great need of care: Nat, a brain tumor survivor, is stuttering and barely able to move; and Becca is an Ecstasy-popping needy child. In a desperate attempt at connection, Amy brings home a drifter, Sam, for a one-night stand. But Sam is so lonely and lost that once he encounters this unusual family's bonds of loyalty, he sees them as his only refuge.
REFUGE is a profoundly honest and original look at four young lives—lost and unsure of what's ahead, seeking a safe place but uncertain of what safety means. Regional Premiere. Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. Directed by Brad Baker (subUrbia). November 29 - December 9, 2012. Black Box Theatre.
