Performances through October 27.
The Guthrie Theater presents a New Arab American Theater Works production of ZAFIRA AND THE RESISTANCE
With a controversial leader in power and Islamophobic sentiments on the rise, an Arab American teacher and her community get swept into the chaos. What will happen when her high school becomes a center for the government’s new agenda? This compelling new play by Minnesota playwright Kathryn Haddad takes a critical look at Arab American identity, institutional racism and the generational fears of Arab and Muslim communities.
Tickets range from $9 to $32. Seating is general admission.
New Arab American Theater Works is a collective of Minnesota-based Arab, Arab American and Muslim theater artists. Their mission is to present new theater works that fill a local and national void of Arab American voices and provide opportunities for them to present their stories through theater.
