New York City
In this world premiere production, a journalist and her colleague find themselves unexpectedly detained by a band of insurgents as bombs rain down on a war-torn landscape. Her captors offer one telephone call – a chance to reconnect with the mother she hasn’t spoken to in ten years, who now lives in Turkey and is preparing for a festival celebrating the great Sufi poet Rumi. History and religion collide in this powerful, ripped-from-the-headlines portrait of a world at war.
