Play: “A Muslim in the Midst”

Event time: 
Friday, September 8, 2017 - 7:00pm
The Crescent Underground Theater - Stiles-Morse Colleges See map

A provocative new play set three days after 9/11 in India’s Silicon Valley, Bangalore.


When an American Hindu couple offers a ride to a poor Muslim family stranded on the streets, their conversation takes an unexpected turn. Can they let go of their fears and prejudices to achieve a common fellowship?

A talkback with the cast & crew follows the play.
