Selected as BEST PRODUCTION 2013
by Willamette Week.
INVASION! by Jonas Hassen Khemiri and translated by Rachel Wilson-Broyles. It is directed by Antonio Sonera. INVASION! is an uproarious tornado of words, images and ideas, all centered around a magical name: Abulkasem. The play assaults our deepest prejudices about identity, race and language. At once hilarious, unsettling and poignant, this deeply subversive play deconstructs a threatening identity – the Arabic male – and forces us to confront our own cultural identity.
Last summer’s original cast returns! John San Nicolas, Chantal Degroat, Gilberto Martin Del Campo, and Nicole Accuardi will return to the Milagro stage for a short three week run from June 11th through June 27th.
