This documentary theater piece follows a Muslim family based in Queens, New York and the wedding of the oldest daughter, Mariam. Throughout the events of the wedding, all four of the siblings are forced to confront the reality of their identities, battling the stigmas around mental health, arranged marriages, drug addiction and queerness. In the midst of this ceremony, these secrets get exposed to each other and the community around them. “Sharum” recalls true events in these scenarios that capture the responses of their parents, and the ways it permanently affects their family dynamic.
