Keeping families together and advocating against deportations

virtual benefit for NSC! "tenderly" by Ida Esmaeili

A generous sponsor of this weekend’s NSC-benefit performance of “tenderly” has offered to match up to $5,000 in donations made through the event page. This is a great time to make a year-end gift to New Sanctuary Coalition and have your contribution DOUBLED!

Make your donation here, and get a ticket to the performance of your choosing to use or pass on – each night will also include a talk-back with the director, actors, and NSC staff.

Join us for a night at the theatre to benefit New Sanctuary Coalition, a multi-faith immigrant-led organization that creates support systems for and empowers those navigating the immigration system. Our play, tenderly, is the story of an Iranian immigrant, written by an Swedish-Iranian immigrant, with a diverse cast and creative team bringing the story to life.

The performances are being livestreamed online on Friday, December 11th and Saturday, December 12th at 7:00PM EST / 6:00PM CST / 5:00PM MST / 4:00PM PST.  

There will be talkbacks with the cast, creative team, and staff from New Sanctuary Coalition after each performance. All audience members are welcome and encouraged to attend the talkbacks.
