Presented at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival
August 16-26, 2018
After Harun's mother discovers he's gay, she is killed in a tragic accident. A year later, Harun is struck with a dystopian vision and a wilting Angel comes to him with a dire warning. As he and his friends organize a counter-protest against white-supremacist uprising, worse turns worser as the veil between the political and the spiritual thins.
After its world premiere at Ignite! Festival in Calgary last year and some hefty TLC at the Banff Playwrights Lab, Harun will make its Edmonton debut this August.
