On the 20th anniversary of the genocide he witnessed firsthand, a copy of David’s book about his time in Rwanda arrives on his doorstep with a note: “You didn’t tell them everything.” Adapted from Sean Lewis’ critically acclaimed DOGS OF RWANDA, this immersive play makes us question how history is represented and reminds us of the redemptive powers of storytelling and community.

“Rarely do you find a work of art speak[ing] so precisely to its time…”Pittsburgh Post Gazette

En Garde Arts has commissioned Chilean/Costa Rican-American playwright Andrea Thome and Puerto Rican director José Zayas to craft a series of developmental readings drawn verbatim from interviews with the undocumented to be performed by actors to preserve the anonymity of our interviewees. What is it like for the people who have settled here, yet often must keep their presence hidden? Partnering with community organizations that serve undocumented immigrants, we aim to go beyond the limited narrative that is too often presented by our media and politicians. What are the many reasons they’ve come, and what are their lives like now? Together, they question: where can we call home?


To produce bold, unconventional, and innovative multimedia and interdisciplinary theatre that marries content with community and inspires dialogue and debate about the salient issues of our time.
