“Director Tim Robbins hits a home run with this powerful, engrossing piece.”—Stage Raw

The stories of twelve actors’ ancestors, told in twelve languages and twelve different eras, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland. Directed by Tim Robbins, with live music, poetry and kinetic movement, The New Colossus is an homage to the strength, resilience and dignity of the immigrants and refugees who risked it all to find a better life.
