JUNE 4 – JULY 12
THE WHO AND THE WHAT
by Ayad Akhtar
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of THE INVISIBLE HAND and DISGRACED – a thrillingly fierce and funny new play about identity, religion and the contradictions that make us who we are. 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. A passionate and searing look at a family divided by faith, bonded by love and searching for truth in contemporary America.
“A FIERY AND PROBING NEW PLAY, CRACKLING WITH IDEAS.”
New York Times
