MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

by KATHRYN HADDAD

directed by MALEK NAJJAR and ZEINA SALAME

October 11 –  27

Dowling Studio, Guthrie Theater

818 S 2nd St, Minneapolis, MN 55415

New Arab American Theater Works’ production of Zafira and the Resistance, written by Minnesota playwright Kathryn Haddad and directed by Malek Najjar and Zeina Salame, will play October 11–27, 2019 at the Dowling Studio.

The country has come under the spell of a despotic leader and rising anti-immigrant and Islamophobic sentiment.  Arab American school teacher Zafira Khoury and her community get swept into the chaos. What will happen when the local high school becomes a center for the government’s new agenda?

This compelling play takes a critical look at Arab American identity, institutional racism, the generational struggles and fears of Arabs and Muslims and the possibility of collective punishment.

Ensemble: Hala Adwan, Noor Adwan, Mireille Tenachian Al Ahmar, Heidi Berg, Garry Geiken, Eva Gemlo, Joey Haddad, Lina Jamoul, Erika Kuhn, William Maus, Stephanie Ruas, Filsan Said, Rasha Ahmed Sharif, Eric Tu

Designers: Ali Elabaddy (Sound), Hend al Mansour (Set & Costume), Jordan Lee Thompson (Videographer), Mike Wangen (Lighting)
