About This Show

Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith represents a first in American theater — a Muslim-American family drama steeped in both Muslim identity and the American experience. An Egyptian immigrant family struggles to find their place within American society, navigating inter-generational conflict, their Islamic faith, and the values of two cultures. In evoking universal themes of faith, culture, belonging, and desire, Ten Acrobats adds a new chapter to the American immigrant narrative as captured on stage.
