‘The Wrong Bashir’ performance on Zoom
July 7, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
This Thursday evening, take a short break from your real life to watch our next staged reading: The Wrong Bashir, written by Zahida Rahemtulla and directed by Khaula Malik.
In The Wrong Bashir, Bashir Ladha—wayward philosophy major leaning towards nihilism—has accidentally been selected to assume an important religious position in his congregation, and his parents have dutifully accepted on his behalf. Family conflict ensues over Bashir’s reaction to his appointment. As the doorbell rings and several unexpected visitors turn up at the Ladha door, the family is taken on a comedic intergenerational ride that forces them to grapple with long-avoided questions of identity and family.
This reading will take place on Zoom on Thursday, July 7, at 5 pm PST. After the reading, we will host a brief feedback-focused discussion about the play, where the cast, creatives, and audience are all welcome to speak about their understanding of and interactions with the work.
“Doors” will open up around 5 minutes before the performance begins. The reading and discussion will last about 90 minutes and will be recorded for archiving purposes.
