“Over the course of Ms. Schultz's performance, the Iraqi refugee population of New York City increased virtually by something like 10%, as she brought stories of urban refugee life into the spare rehearsal room...Ms. Schultz transformed herself...”
The New York Times

"Under Sarah Cameron Sunde's perceptive direction, Schultz gains our sympathies for a people who many people automatically suspect are our enemies. That alone is no small achievement."
The Star Ledger

"How can one person summarize so much pain, pride trauma, love and suffering like an Iraqi refugee while she is, in fact, not an Iraqi refugee herself? As a refugee myself, I gave up to the fact, that no one can hold the complexity of the crisis, it's so complicated and different. Yet I was wrong. In this event, I was captured from the first word until the end. It was brilliant."
Ibrahim, Iraqi refugee

Chicago Premiere at Silk Road

No Place Called Home
Chicago Premiere Presented by Silk Road Rising
A New Play Written and Performed by Kim Schultz
With Music Performed by Ronnie Malley

Original NYC Production Directed by Sarah Cameron Sunde
Original Score Composed and Performed by Amikaeyla Gaston
Commissioned and Produced in NYC by Intersections International

No Place Called Home premiered off-broadway in 2010, followed by a national tour at regional theaters and universities, including a final stop at The John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. as part of "World Refugee Day" with UNHCR. Best-selling author Khaled Hosseini introduced the play. I am thrilled to bring it, at long last, to Chicago. 

The play is being presented as part of Silk Road Solos at Silk Road Rising February 19-22.  Local internationally acclaimed musician Ronnie Malley will be joining me onstage. 

Tickets, schedule and more information can be found at:

(No Place Called Home was developed through a reading at the Lark Play Development Center in NYC, a Residency at Groton School in Massachusetts and with support from Illusion Theatre in Minnesota. The New York run of No Place Called Home was produced by Intersections International, Parlagreco Productions, in collaboration with Aaron Louis and 3-legged Dog, the cell, Mile Square Theatre and Wild Project in New York City October 2010.)
