On Monday, February 27, 2017 at 7:30pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents a discussion with playwright Zayd Dohrn and director Kip Fagan on the creation of The Profane. Members of the cast will perform excerpts from Dohrn’s sharp and timely tale.
Safe in the liberal fortress of Manhattan, Raif Almedin is a first-generation immigrant who prides himself on his modern, enlightened views. But when his daughter falls for the son of a conservative Muslim family, two households are forced to confront each other’s religious beliefs and cultural traditions, and to face their own deep-seated prejudice.
The Profane, a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award, will have its world premiere with Playwrights Horizons at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater in New York on March 17, 2017, with performances running until April 30, 2017.
Brutal, funny, and powerful, Dohrn writes fantastic dialogue, masterfully balancing grit and humor.
