This Pulitzer Prize-winning play addresses issues of identity, religion, and culture. The protagonist, Amir, has internalized his Muslim heritage. When asked by his young nephew Abe (born Hussein Malik) to help defend a local imam from charges of terrorism, Amir finds himself at a personal and career crossroads. Writer Ayad Akhtar raises important questions concerning Muslim-American identity throughout his celebrated work.
A provocative play that is a natural fit for World History, American History and Language Arts classes. Extensive student study guides and pre-show in-class workshops will be available.
