My Arab Fall - drama performance

My Arab Fall is a multi-media theatrical performance connecting Egypt’s Arab Spring to the plight of San Antonio women in the age of #METOO #YOTAMBIEN or #ANAKAMAN. Seen through the eyes of two women - a naive yet eager Chicana tourist and an Egyptian activist fighting to change the world she lives in - this piece is a sometimes comical, sometimes harrowing exploration of sexual harassment/assault amid the dramatic social changes taking place in our world today.

Cast: Anna De Luna & Kauthar Harrak-Sharif
Written by: Anna De Luna and Doyle Avant
Directed by: Mellissa Marlowe

There will be two performances on Saturday, August 3rd at 3pm and 7pm in the Black Box Theatre at Palmetto Center for the Arts. Both performances are free and open to the public. This show contains adult content/language and is not suitable for children 12 and under. For more information please call (210) 218-2459.
