I’ve spent the past month on the gorgeous campus of Princeton University, playing ‘Tariq/Tim’ in the McCarter Theatre’s LAB Spotlight production of Heather Raffo’s NOURA, featuring the playwright, herself, along with Dahlia Azama and Haaz Sleiman. Sincerely grateful to the crack team at the McCarter for a most hospitable stay, as well as to photographer Brad Resnick for these images. It’s been a year since I began workshopping this piece, through incarnations at CSC, EpicTheatreEnsemble, and Noor Theatre here in the city, with jaunts to Kansas City Repertory and the Arab American Museum along the way. I’m now on to other scheduled projects, but wishing Heather and the gang much success as they forge NOURA’s future, beginning with the world premiere production at the Shakespeare Theatre in D.C. in 2018.
