This new hit comedy from Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Disgraced, tells the tale of Zarina, a Pakistani-American writer working on wrapping up her novel about women and Islam. When Zarina’s father signs her up for an Islam-based dating site she meets Eli, a young convert who bridges the gap between her traditional heritage and modern life. But the tight-knit ties that bind Zarina’s family together are tested when her conservative father and sister discover her manuscript and are troubled by her thoughts on the role of some Islamic beliefs in the lives of women. A thought-provoking blend of humor and drama, The Who & the What receives its Midwest premiere at Chicago’s Victory Gardens Theater.
