The Who & The What
A thrillingly fierce, funny new play about identity, religion and our contradictions
Directed by Hana S. Sharif
Brilliant Pakistani-American writer Zarina is focused on finishing her novel about women and Islam when she meets Eli, a young convert who bridges the gulf between her modern life and her traditional heritage.
But when her conservative father and sister discover her controversial manuscript, they are all forced to confront the beliefs that define them.
From Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of Disgraced, comes a thrillingly fierce and funny new play about identity, religion and the contradictions that make us who we are.
