No Place Called Home.

A Solo Play Written and Performed by Kim Schultz 
with Original Music by Amikaeyla Gaston 
Directed by Sarah Cameron Sunde 
Commissioned by Intersections International

While traveling to Jordan, Lebanon and Syria to interview Iraqi refugees and hear their stories, actor and author Kim Schultz never expected to fall in love. She did. This is that story. A story of an American woman and an Iraqi man. A story of one refugee out of four million. A story -- that isn't supposed to be a love story.

“Over the course of Ms. Schultz's performance, the Iraqi refugee population of New York City increased virtually by something like 10%, as she brought stories of urban refugee life into the spare rehearsal room...Ms. Schultz transformed herself...” The New York Times


"Under Sarah Cameron Sunde's perceptive direction, Schultz gains our sympathies for a people who many people automatically suspect are our enemies. That alone is no small achievement." The Star Ledger


"How can one person summarize so much pain, pride, trauma, love and suffering like an Iraqi refugee while she is, in fact, not an Iraqi refugee herself? As a refugee myself, I gave up to the fact, that no one can hold the complexity of the crisis, it's so complicated and different. Yet I was wrong. In this event, I was captured from the first word until the end. It was brilliant." Ibrahim, Iraqi refugee
