The Syracuse Stage opens its 40th season on September 14 with a production of “Cry for Peace: Voices from the Congo.” Directed by Ping Chong, “Cry for Peace” features five Congolese refugees sharing their real life stories. Chong interviewed dozens of people from Syracuse’s Congolese community before selecting the five who would share their stories on stage. Kyle Bass, the Stage’s dramaturge, helped Chong weave the life stories of the Congolese performers into a gripping production.
“Cry for Peace” runs September 14 – 23 at the Syracuse Stage. For tickets, contact the box office at 820 E Genesee St. or 315-443-3275. You can also purchase tickets from http://www.syracusestage.org.
