Due to increased interest from the community, Horizon Theatre Company has added three Student and Senior Matinees and two evening performances to its run of Third Country by Suehyla El-Attar. Added performances will take place October 22-25, 2013.

The world comes to a small Southern town in the World Premiere of Third Country.

STORY
Nura, a refugee, clings to her soccer ball like a lifeline as she meets Sasha, a resettlement worker who is her guide to a strange new home in a small Southern town. But the welcome is mixed in this community reeling from a flood of newcomers – all refugees from around the world. A community meeting divides the town, and a soccer field becomes the battleground for its future. Will longtime residents and these eager new Americans learn to work together to find peace?

Inspired by real life events in nearby Clarkston, Georgia, playwright Suehyla El-Attar (Horizon’s The Perfect Prayer) uses her signature wit and optimism to look at a community in transition, and what happens when we must redefine and share our homes. A poignant new play from our own changing backyard.
