Silk Road Rising’s timely world premiere of Jamil Khoury’s Mosque Alert has been playing to enthusiastic houses since opening in March. By popular demand,performances of Mosque Alert have been extended through May 15th.
Inspired by the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy in New York City, Mosque Alertopens a window into the world of three fictional families living in Naperville, Illinois, whose lives are interrupted by a proposed Islamic Center on the site of a beloved local landmark.
This extension adds eight new opportunities to see what Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times calls “precisely the right recipe for a solid argument play.”
Performances continue through May 15th:
Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays at 8:00pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 4:00pm. Tickets are selling fast!
