Sanctuary City

Sanctuary City

New York Theatre Workshop presents the return of Martyna Majok's Sanctuary City at the Lucille Lortel Theatre as part of its 2021/2022 season. The production originally ran in the 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season, but was forced to suspend performances from Mar. 12, 2020, due to the pandemic. 

2018 Pulitzer Prize winner, NYTW Usual Suspect and former 2050 Fellow Martyna Majok brings us an unforgettable story that asks what we’re willing to sacrifice for someone we love. Rebecca Frecknall, director of the 2019 Olivier Award-winning Summer and Smoke, helms the highly anticipated production.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

Our Sanctuary City Review

We’re all searching for some version of safety. A place where one is free to think, speak, live, and love that is exempt of judgement and ridicule. Sanctuary City, a new play from Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok, questions if this sort of place exists, and if it does, is everyone welcome.
