About this show

In Back of the Throat, two government officials pay an Arab-American man, Khalid, a seemingly innocuous visit. What begins as a friendly inquiry soon devolves into a chilling, full-blown investigation of Khalid's presumed ties to terrorists. At times surreal and comic, Back of the Throat examines the way in which facts, evidence and (mis)perceptions are used to distort the truth and how notions of cultural otherness impact the relationship between the accusers and the accused. There are additional previews on Tuesday, April 4 at 7:30pm and Wednesday, April 5 at 7:30pm.
