WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Who & The What, the upcoming and final production of the 2013/2013 Season at La Jolla Playhouse. Running from February 11 – March 9, 2014, this fascinating piece—written by Ayad Akhtar, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and directed by Kimberly Senior—focuses on the story of Zarina, a young girl raised in a conservative Muslim family in Atlanta. The outspoken and brilliant Zarina routinely clashes with her traditional father and sister. Zarina's one outlet – her recently completed book about women and Islam – threatens to tear her family apart for good. With humor and ferocity, The Who & The What examines the giant chasm between our traditions and our contemporary lives.
