New Arab American Theatre Works
Productions of ROAD TO THE CITY OF APPLES, IN ALGERIA THEY KNOW MY NAME, and A CLOWN IN EXILE will run in repertory between June 26 and July 12, 2015 at Mixed Blood Theatre.


ROAD TO THE CITY OF APPLES
By: Kathryn Haddad
Director: Dipankar Mukherjee
Road to the City of Apples tells the story of Ahmed and Khairy - two undocumented Palestinians on a road trip from New Jersey to Wisconsin.  Their individual stories intertwine as they discover the meaning of friendship and cope with changing cultural norms - both American and Arab on their winding road to an American dream. The Israeli occupation, gay rights, American treatment of Arabs and Muslims, and the plight of undocumented immigrants are explored in this show.


IN ALGERIA THEY KNOW MY NAME
By: Taous Claire Khazem
Director and Dramaturge: Zaraawar Mistry
In Algeria, they say you don't marry one finger, you marry all ten. In this heartfelt and humorous one woman play, Minnesota raised Taous Khazem travels to her father's homeland to work as a theater artist, and unexpectedly falls in love with an Algerian clown. Caught in between traditions, religions and misconceptions, Taous struggles to find a sense of belonging in a foreign land, but ultimately discovers a fresh meaning of home, family, art and bicycle rides.

A CLOWN IN EXILE
Created by Mohammed Yabdri with Noah Bremer
Mohamed Yabdri's tragic clown goes on a journey to overcome his sense of cultural inferiority. After searching the world for a place to call home, he discovers that his dreams sit on the wings of a paper plane. A Clown in Exile premiered at the Alliance Fran├žaise in Minneapolis, MN and went on to perform in Paris at the Algerian Cultural Center, at the National Theatre of Algiers, at the French Cultural Institutes of Oran, Tlemcen and Constantine, Algeria, and at the 2013 Minnesota Fringe Festival.
