October 3 – 8 at Arts Court Theatre.
Sponsored by Ottawa 2017 Arts, Culture & Heritage Investment Program, this theatre-based community outreach project aims to increase dialogue about the Muslim experience in Canada with staged play readings, interactive workshops, special guest lectures, networking events, and more. Professional and non-professional actors from across Ottawa will perform in three exciting and provocative plays by some of Canada’s and America’s most insightful political playwrights: Back of the Throat by Yussef El Guindi, Jabber by Marcus Youssef, and Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar. This exciting community project is sponsored by Ottawa 2017 in partnership with the National Council of Canadian Muslims, and the South Nepean Muslim Community Centre.
