About This Show

These days, every brown actor is wondering, “Should I take that terrorist role for the money or reject it on principle?” What will Omar, Malek, and Vijay do when put to the test? Learn how far each actor is willing to go to get the role — especially when confronted by the casting director’s sage pieces of direction such as, “Keep in mind that this is a guy who has probably spent most of his life in some Arab country — like Afghanistan or Pakistan. In other words, he’s crazy! And probably brainwashed, too.” Who are the hijackers and who are the hostages in the entertainment industry?

Part of the New York International Fringe Festival.
