Director's Statement

Ironbound is an uphill battle. An immigrant woman who gets knocked down but chooses to get back up over and over again, an immigrant man who needs to follow his dreams, a teenage boy who just wants to feel valuable, and a working class man who is fighting to hold onto the person he loves all collide in their search for safety. In this gripping play, Majok asks us to examine what we are holding on to, who we trust, and how hard are we willing to fight to protect what's important to us.
