Inspired by stories from the community, The Rivers Don’t Know explores the experiences of refugees and immigrants in Pittsburgh. Through three interlocking stories of a 1940s steel miller worker, a Somali family, and a class of ESL students, the production explores what it means to call the steel city home.
The Rivers Don’t Know is presented in partnership with Point Park University’s Pittsburgh Playhouse and Cornerstone Theater Company. Our community partners for this production are All for All powered by the Global Switchboard, ARYSE, Global Minds, Literacy Pittsburgh, JFCS Refugee & Immigrant Services, and the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh.
The Rivers Don’t Know contains adult language and is recommended for ages 12 and up.
