The Guthrie Theater presents

Zafira and the Resistance 

a New Arab American Theater Works production of
Zafira and the Resistance
by KATHRYN HADDAD
directed by MALEK NAJJAR and ZEINA SALAME

Overview

Arab. Middle Eastern. Muslim. These terms are thrown around in today’s news media, yet they continue to be equated with another set of words: Terrorist. War. Oppressive. This compelling play by Minnesota playwright Kathryn Haddad takes a critical look at Arab American identity, institutional racism, the generational struggles and fears of Arabs and Muslims and the possibility of collective punishment.
