New play coming up! Undrown'd: Seeking Asylum

I'm happy to announce that I'll be portraying an Iraqi refugee in the new play "Undrown'd: Seeking Asylum", devised and directed by Benita de Wit. The play is about the journey and struggles of refugees living in detention centers. While preparing for the role and doing research on refugees, I was heartbroken to find out that some of the worst things that are happening to these families and people right now are not necessarily reported by the media. The play was based on "The Tempest", by William Shakespeare and is Benita's Columbia MFA Directing Thesis. Click here for tickets!
