From the Egyptian-American winner of the Steinberg New American Play Award comes a romantic comedy about Muslim and American identity full of unexpected twists. Musa, a new immigrant from Egypt, picks up Sheri, a boisterous and quirky waitress, after her shift. A night of improbable passion turns into an extended labyrinth of cultural assumptions upended.
Lead Underwriters: Kumi and Bill Martin
"A Romeo and Juliet story—an Annie Hall story, a West Side Story story—for Americans in the 21st century. And perhaps for all people in this back-and-forth, from-one-home-to-another, permanently globalized world."
