Immigrants to a new country may learn the language, adopt the clothing and customs of their new neighbors, and become naturalized citizens, but something holds them back from making it truly home. They might long for the nation they left, or find that what happened in the past keeps them from moving forward. In Maya Arad Yasur's drama Suspended, two men work as window washers on skyscrapers, able to see the corridors of power but unable to enter them. They're both refugees from war-torn countries, and so they've made an agreement not to speak of the past. Is their future nothing more than menial labor under the unknowing and uncaring gaze of their new home, or is there a way for them to finally pass through that barrier to full acceptance? Upstream Theater opens its twelfth season with Suspended. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 7 p.m. Sunday (October 7 to 22) at the Kranzberg Arts Center (501 North Grand Boulevard; The final performance is at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 23. Tickets are $20 to $30.
