TCTB Review Roundup: ZAHIRA AND THE RESISTANCE by New Arab American Theater Works

CLOSING THIS WEEKEND: New Arab American Theater Works' ZAHIRA AND THE RESISTANCE at Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio. Read what our bloggers thought of the show via the links below.
PhenoMNal Twin Cities
"Zafira and the Resistance is a play about race that can’t seem to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. On its face, Zafira appears to be an attempt at a Margaret Atwood-style dystopian allegory, but it is also a parlor drama about four women from different backgrounds coming together against a common enemy. It is also, somehow, a story about the mystical qualities of olive oil."
The Stages of MN
"It may seem small now and in terms of production it is, but the ideas are large and it will open up wide avenues for discussion among attendees. I cannot recommend this enough."
