Program Description
What is it like to be 16 years old, a girl, a Muslim, and a refugee all at the same time? At Fatima’s new high school, she’s the only one wearing a hijab. Her parents transferred her after hateful graffiti was found on the wall of her old school. But there’s plenty of ignorance and assumptions at her new school too. It isn’t until she begins an unlikely friendship with Jorah, a young man with a troubled reputation, that she starts to feel less like an outsider. How can she balance this new relationship with her family’s faith? This play will spark meaningful discussions on the judgements and assumptions we make based on our perceived differences. This incredibly raw and powerful production from Montreal, Canada challenges stereotypes and encourages real conversation about race, religion, and identity.
