"A play about a sleepy library built atop the U.S./Canada border that becomes an unlikely meeting place for separated families. Winner of the Next Act! New Play Summit, playwright Kareem Fahmy tells the story of five people from different countries and cultures choosing between breaking the law or saving themselves, while trying desperately to understand one another. Alliances are built and broken, borders are straddled, but love and human connection prevail." For tickets, click here
