  2. A young Iranian-Canadian woman grapples with a famous poem by Rumi - the 13th century master classical Persian poet.

    Reading and re-reading the stanzas, she struggles to make sense of the archaic language, stumbling across the challenging words and phrases.

    Reading Rumi is an expression of the search for culture and identity that many young first and second-generation immigrants undergo in their adopted homelands.

    This work is about the power of art and literature to transmit culture and construct community and the ability for language to create spaces of inclusion and exclusion.

Mahmoud is an irreverent & hilarious one-woman show about an aging Iranian engineer-cum-taxi driver, a fabulously gay Spaniard, and a young Iranian-Canadian girl, all trying to get by the day-to-day grind in a busy metropolitan city. Their stories come together over the course of an hour, and through their connections with the audience, themselves and each other, they explore the themes of displacement, immigration, home, and culture.
