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. Presented in partnership with City Theatre and Cornerstone Theater Company, The Rivers Don’t Know is made possible by a “RADical ImPAct Grant" awarded to City Theatre by the Allegheny Regional Asset District and community partners ARYSE, The All for All Coalition powered by the Global Switchboard, Global Minds, Literary Pittsburgh, JFCS Refugee & Immigrant Services, and World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh.

The Rivers Don't Know contains adult language and is recommended for ages 12 and up.
