Theater Emory celebrates the fresh perspectives of twelve playwrights from our culturally diverse theater community. Guest writers, directors and performers explore how we view our history, identity, personal relationships and writing for the 21st century.

Raised in a conservative Muslim family in Atlanta, the outspoken and brilliant Zarina routinely clashes with her traditional father and sister. Zarina's one outlent--her recently completed book about women and Islam--threatens to tear her family apart for good. With humor and ferocity, Ayad Akhtar's The Who & The What examines the giant chasm between our traditions and our contemporary lives.
