Pay-What-You-Can Theatre “I Call My Brothers” | Potrero Hill

Crowded Fire Theater is thrilled to present the West Coast Premiere of award-winning Tunisian-Swedish novelist and playwright Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s “I Call My Brothers”, March 31-April 23, 2016.

Enjoy Pay What You Can Previews March 31-April 2.

A kaleidoscopic perspective of a Muslim-American’s experience, “I Call My Brothers” investigates the insidious nature of racial profiling:

Something just happened. A car. An explosion. And a city is paralyzed with fear. The goal is to blend in. The goal is to become invisible. There. Now you’re ready.

In this funny and fierce showdown with paranoia, the award-winning Jonas Hassen Khemiri takes us on an intense 24-hour journey inside one young man’s head. What happens when the lines between reality and fantasy, love and fear, criminal and victim, become increasingly blurred?

Directed by Evren Odcikin, “I Call My Brothers” features local Bay Area actors Shoresh Alaudini, Denmo Ibrahim, Olivia Rosaldo, and Mohammad Shehata. Designers include Adeline Smith (scenic), Michelle Mulholland (costume), Beth Hersh (lighting), Sara Huddleston (sound), and Devon LaBelle (props).

Performances April 7-23 are Wednesday-Saturday only.
