Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize. "…a continuously engaging play about thorny questions of identity and religion in the contemporary world, with an accent on the incendiary topic of how radical Islam and the terrorism it inspires, have affected the public discourse. Everyone has been told that politics and religion are two subjects that should be off limits at social gatherings. But watching Mr. Akhtar's characters rip into these forbidden topics, there's no arguing that they make for ear-tickling good theater."

“I attended my first Community Theater production last night and was delighted! I had no idea we had such talented folks in HVL. The space is intimate, and we felt like we were really part of the production. We felt there was a great amount of caring and cohesiveness among the staff and actors. Even the crowd was great- not the stuffy theatre snobs I’ve experienced in bigger cities.”
