MONDAY NIGHT PLAYWRIGHT SERIES at the KC Rep- Damascus
December 10 @ 7:00 PM CST
Damascus by Bennett Fisher & Directed by Melissa Crespo
When Lloyd, a stranded white kid, begs Hassan, a Somali American airport shuttle driver, to take him across state lines to catch a rerouted flight, the two wary companions set out on a heart-pounding journey through the Midwestern winter. Victory Garden’s outgoing Artistic Associate Bennett Fisher brings us a high-stakes, road-rage thriller that delves full-force into the misguided politics of terrorism.
