New Threads 2017 Staged Reading Series presents At the Periphery by Sedef Ecer

Tuesday, August 15 7pm
Brava Theater Center Studio

In At the Periphery farmers Dilcha and Bilo leave their home in the countryside to make a life in the big city. Young lovers Azad and Tamar appeal to superstar Sultane’s hope-filled reality TV show to realize their dream of a life in the West. Gyspy woman Kybelee finds home in a shack she has made with her own hands. Focusing on the rarely told stories of migrants in Istanbul’s urban slums, Turkish-French playwright Sedef Ecer takes a lyrical, funny, and deeply human look at hope and home against all odds.
