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

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

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.

Check out the promo video which interviews cast, crew, and audience members:
