The Profane

The Profane

Written by Zayd Dorhn
Directed by Kip Fagan

Safe in the liberal fortress of Manhattan, Raif Almedin is a first-generation immigrant who prides himself on his modern, enlightened views. But when his daughter falls for the son of a conservative Muslim family in White Plains, he discovers the threshold of his tolerance. In Zayd Dohrn’s sharp and timely tale, two families are forced to confront each other’s religious beliefs and cultural traditions, and to face their own deep-seated prejudice.

There will be a talkback after many performances of The Profane , featuring various members of the cast and Playwrights staff. View the calendar for talkback dates »
