The Mission District’s creative souls will give us another eye-opening drama this upcoming week. The Intersection for the Arts is showcasing a trilogy of plays from newly rising playwrights throughout the Bay Area and we are lucky enough to be just a few steps away from the theater’s doors.
The rising playwright Sharif Abu-Hamdeh with the help of Resident Theater Company Campo Santo will premiere Habibi next Thursday, October 14th, 2010. Habibi is a play that intricately follows the generations of three Palestinian immigrants attempting to make sense of the world around them. Moreover, the three immigrants struggle to understand where the legacy of their culture fits into the modern culture of their lives’, their family dynamic, and the United States. They struggle to understand their identities, while fighting against the American eyes that label them as terrorists.
Grab a friend and come watch this powerful play that will illustrate the difficulty of assimilating into American society when you share the same skin color as the enemy.
