I'm very happy to announce that I'll be joining the cast of Eh Dah? Questions for my Father which will be going up as part of the Next Door @ NYTW series in March and April. This musical follows the stories of an Egyptian and Egyptian-American family across three generations and explores the themes of identity and belonging. The music is beautiful and the stories of trying to find your place in the world and in your family are universal.

On January 4th, I'll be performing in a work in progress staged reading of Iphigenia Point Blank a new multi-disciplinary piece that examines the plight of refugees through the lens of Euripidies character Iphigenia. The production features original film and music alongside scripted material to tackle the paralells of refugees past and present. The play is written by Lisa Schlesinger, composed by Kinan Azmeh, directed by Marion Schoevaert with a film by Irinia Patkanian. The lead Iphigenia is played by Layale Chaker on the violin.

December 13th – 15th I will be performing at The Flea in their late night show Serials. This late night play competition pits 5 plays against each other and lets the audience vote each night on their favorite plays. The top 3 at the end of the weekend gets to write the next episode for the following cycle. It's always a lot of fun to be a part of and to watch!
