Invasion! by Jonas Hassen Khemiri, translated by Rachel Willson-Broyles | Directed by Evren Odcikin
Invasion! traces one name -- Abulkasem -- through a series of interconnected stories to examine how Westerners’ relationship to the Middle East is shaped by language and mythology. This sharp and subversive play is by turns comic, poignant, and horrifying as it confronts the prejudice that permeates our world everyday.
Produced by Crowded Fire Theater at the Boxcar in San Francisco, CA in 2012
