Autobiography of a Terrorist

Autobiography of a Terrorist

a world premiere play by Saïd Sayrafiezadeh
directed by Evren Odcikin

Saïd has written a play about growing up Iranian and Jewish-American during the Iran hostage crisis. As he and his well-meaning collaborators try to stage his script, things go quickly and hilariously from bad to worse. Will Saïd ever be able to just fit in? Whiting Award–winning writer Sayrafiezadeh (Brief Encounters With the Enemy, When Skateboards Will Be Free) brilliantly pokes fun at the complications of hyphenated identity in America.

“Saïd Sayrafiezadeh is a name you may want to remember. He writes with extraordinary power.” —The New York Times
