EXILE IS MY HOME, is a Sci-Fi Immigrant Fairy Tale that follows two
creative refugee lovers/mothers who, in a search for a home, go on a
suspenseful intergalactic  journey through post-apocalyptic and
surreal landscapes. The worlds they encounter are filled with fellow
disoriented refugees, lascivious oddball artists, evil border police,
and a massage therapist witch. In the statement for its Honorable
Mention choice, the Jane Chambers Playwriting Award noted that the play
is “moving, epic, feminist, and comedic. This highly theatrical play
evokes the human, social, and political complexities of exile with
depth, humor and adaptive re-invention. This eighty minute new work
reverberates in profound, sometimes playful ways with our diasporic
world as it explores exilic lives, loves, losses, as well as their
prospective transformations.”
