“The Domestic Crusaders” returns to NYC! buy your tickets NOW

This award-winning two-act play was written by my friend Wajahat Ali and is returning to NYC for a special performance commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The play is a day in the life of a modern Muslim Pakistani-American family of six eclectic, unique members, who convene at the family house to celebrate the twenty-first birthday of the youngest child. Since I’m stuck in Wisconsin I’ve yet to see the play myself but everyone I know who has seen it has raved. This really is the play for the 9-11 generation of muslim Americans. The screenplay is also available from McSweeney’s publishing, for those of us outside the NY media sphere.
