West Coast premiere, developed in the January 2019 Powers New Voices Festival
By Selina Fillinger
Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch
National tensions swirl around the trial of Susie Glenn, an American teenager who left her home and family to join ISIS. Federal prosecutor Claire Fathi takes the case despite being reluctant to have her own gender and Muslim faith exploited in the name of justice. The Chicago Tribune exclaims that Selina Fillinger “can pack more moment-by-moment tension into a play than most playwrights ever manage in their careers.” This West Coast premiere etches compelling, complex portraits of a troubled young woman, her father, and the attorneys who battle over her future. Contains strong language.
Running time: One hour and 35 minutes, with no intermission.
