About the Show

Late at night, deep in the woods of southern Illinois, a ghost tells Gail she will die within the next 24 hours. So begins THE REFUGE PLAYS, an epic tale that follows one Black family over 70 years. Written by Nathan Alan Davis, this bold reimagining of an American “family play” is full of humor, heart, and surprises. Patricia McGregor directs.

The Steinberg Center for Theatre, inaugurated in March 2004, featured Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel as its debut, starring Viola Davis and directed by Dan Sullivan. Beyond the Laura Pels Theatre, the center expanded to encompass the Black Box Theatre and a new education facility. This off-Broadway venue embodies Roundabout’s dedication to original and revived works. It was made possible by The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, established in 1986 by Harold Steinberg to support American Theatre. The Trust has granted over $70 million to 125+ theatre groups nationwide. Among the amenities, the Yegen and Donnalley Lounge caters to Chairman’s Circle members, while the Bruce Mitchell Lobby offers an open meeting space.
