PARTNERSHIP WITH IRIS

A performance of The American Unicorn.

Long Wharf Theatre works in partnership with Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS). The Newcomer Play Project seeks to deepen the integration process for immigrants and refugees in Long Wharf’s hometown. It also helps IRIS empower their clients to become active citizens by providing facilitated access to new relationships and experiences. This program engages a population that frequently feels like an outsider at mainstream institutions and provides them with a physical and imaginative space where “otherness” is celebrated for its inherent value in sharing and understanding the human story. Their cultural identities will be reflected through personal retellings shared with our entire community.
