    On the Periphery

    February 23, 2020 - April 4, 2020

    Set in Istanbul and Paris, ON THE PERIPHERY is a new play that focuses on the rarely told stories of migrants in Istanbul’s urban slums. Farmers Dilcha and Bilo leave their home in the countryside to make a life in the big city. Young lovers Azad and Tamar appeal to superstar Sultane’s reality TV show to realize their dream of a life in France. Gyspy woman Kybelee finds home in a shack she has made with her own hands.

    Sedef Ecer’s new play takes a lyrical, funny, and deeply human look at hope and home against all odds. Furthermore, the play examines homelessness and displacement in Istanbul with an expansive global lens that brings it home to the San Francisco Bay Area where these issues are extremely palpable and relevant.

    Translated from Turkish by Evren Odcikin, this production marks both On the Periphery’s US premiere as well as the first co-production between Golden Thread Productions and Crowded Fire Theater. For more information about the history between these two companies, click here.
