I CALL MY BROTHERS (courtesy the Forum website):
written by JONAS HASSEN KHEMIRI
translated from Swedish by Rachel Willson-Broyles
directed by MICHAEL DOVE
SEPTEMBER 9-OCTOBER 1, 2016
A car has exploded. A city has been crippled by fear. Amor wanders the city, doing his best to blend in. His best to become invisible and not attract any suspicious glances. But what is normal behaviour? And who is a potential perpetrator? Over twenty-four hours, Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s fierce, funny, and explosive play explores where the lines between criminal and victim, and fantasy and reality, blur.
Written in response to the Stockholm terrorist attacks of 2010, I Call My Brothers began as a New York Times column Khemiri published just one week after the suicide bombing and is being adapted for this DC production. Khemiri is an internationally-renowned and award-winning playwright and novelist whose work has been translated into more than fifteen languages and his plays have been performed by over 100 companies. He won a 2011 Obie Award for playwriting.
