Wordsmyth’s bilingual play for the 2020-2021 season!
A journalist and her colleague find themselves unexpectedly “detained” by a band of insurgents as bombs rain down on a war-torn landscape. Her captors offer her one telephone call – a chance to reconnect with the mother she hasn’t spoken to in 10 years, now living in Turkey and preparing for a festival celebrating the great Sufi poet Rumi. Violence, religion, and the beauty of whirling dervishes collide in this powerful portrait of a world at war.
The reading is in Turkish/English with subtitles, and will be available to stream on our Facebook page and YouTube channel from August 20-30! On Monday, August 30, at 7:00 PM Central, we will have a live talkback with the playwright hosted on our Facebook page!
