A new play by Jonas Hassen Khemiri, I Call My Brothers, translated by Rachel Willson-Broyles, will run at the New Ohio Theatre In New York from January 22 through February 23. On the day after a car bombing, Amor walks through a city paralyzed by fear, with his backpack and cell phone, trying to blend in. For the next 24 hours, the lines between criminal and victim, fantasy and reality become increasingly blurry, in a showdown between our prejudices and paranoia.
Khemiri’s novel Montecore: The Silence of the Tiger was published in the U.S. in 2011. His Obie Award-winning play Invasion! opened in New York in 2011. For ticket information, click here
