I CALL MY BROTHERS
Written by Jonas Hassen Khemiri, translated by Rachel Willson-Broyles.
February 9-March 4. Shows Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. (no show February 13)
Something has happened. A car. An explosion. And a city is paralyzed with fear. But Amor has an important errand to run. He walks the streets with his backpack and his cell phone, doing his best to blend in. But what looks normal? A funny and fierce showdown with paranoia, I CALL MY BROTHERS offers a 24-hour journey inside the head of a young, Arab-American man, suddenly a stranger in his own city. What happens when the lines between reality and fantasy, love and fear, criminal and victim, become increasingly blurred? REGIONAL PREMIERE
“Intense and visceral… a portrait of the lasting psychological effects of being subjected to and internalizing racism… an immersive look into the internal workings and emotional state of man who is an outsider in his own hometown.” (DC Theatre Scene)
