It’s the summer of 1992 and Washington Heights is on the brink of collapse following the deadly shooting of an unarmed Dominican man. Seeking solace, a local priest barricades himself inside his church, along with a small group of parishioners. As their numbers grow, tensions build both outside the church walls and in the sanctuary, threatening an already tumultuous City of Refuge. Inspired by the true events of the Washington Heights riots and the legacy of racial-fueled tension it left behind, this world premiere play set more than 30 years ago has never felt more relevant.

One out of every 54 homes in America received a foreclosure notice in 2008.
Award-winning playwright and author of “Love in the Time of Foreclosure,”
Stephanie Alison Walker, takes audiences on a deeply personal journey through recent history as she shines a light on three out of the millions of stories of loss.
A young couple faces eviction from the dream house they stretched to buy;
an elderly widow falls prey to a reverse mortgage scheme; and a minister of the prosperity gospel must face the flock she’s led astray.
American Home takes an unflinching look at the impossible choices people make when faced with losing everything, and, ultimately, celebrates the powerful resilience of community and the human spirit.
