"The stories of young American Muslims will win you over with simple sincerity."
The Village Voice

The New England premiere of Beyond Sacred (2015), an interview-based theater production by Ping Chong + Company, explores the real-life stories of five young Muslim Americans, from a range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, coming of age in New York City at a time of increasing hostility towards, and violence against, Muslims in the United States.

60 minute performance will be followed by a 30 minute talkback with the artists.

Made possible in part by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Presenters: Building Bridges: Campus Community Engagement Grants Program, a component of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
