Wednesday, August 24: Hejira

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Kennedy Center playwright Thomas Diggs wanted to understand and make some sense of the world he was seeing on the news. The result is his new work "Hejira" (Arabic for "Journey"). The play follows two children, one Sunni and one Shi'ite, whose story presents a microcosm for exploring faith, injustice, ethnicity and the bonds of kinship.

  • Utah Contemporary Theatre will present a free reading of "Hejira" on Thursday, August 25th at 7:00 p.m. at Cucina Deli (1026 E 2nd Ave). For more information, call 801-886-3019.
