Performances September 7 – October 1, 2017
Tuesday, August 22 at 7:30 pm : “FIRST LOOK: THE WHO & THE WHAT”

Join us Tuesday, August 22 at 7:30pm for a free event that takes you inside the creative process for “FIRST LOOK: THE WHO & THE WHAT”, the first of the 2017-2018 Season. An audience favorite, engage directly with the artists behind the production.

Brilliant Pakistani-American writer Zarina is focused on finishing her novel about women and Islam when she meets Eli, a young convert who bridges the gulf between her modern life and her traditional heritage. But when her conservative father and sister discover her controversial manuscript, they are all forced to confront the beliefs that define them. From Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of Disgraced, THE WHO AND THE WHAT is a thrillingly fierce and funny new play about identity, religion and the contradictions that make us who we are.

Co-produced with Pratidhwani
Directed by Samip Raval
