A Hope and Hell Theatre Company production, originally presented by David Mirvish.
A New York dinner party. A shattering cultural collision. When discussion turns to politics and religion, the match is lit on a combustible powder keg of identity politics.
This play, set in New York City circa 2011/12, is the story of an ambitious South Asian lawyer who, over the course of several months and as the result of several personal confrontations, is faced with several unsettling truths about himself, his situation, and his perspectives. The play asks challenging questions about the nature and purpose of faith, about race relationships in contemporary America, and about the process and responsibilities of creating art.
