Zarina, a talented Pakistani-American writer, has put her personal life on hold to finish her novel about women and Islam. That is, until her conservative father signs her up for an Islam-based dating website and introduces her to Eli, a young convert to the faith. But when Zarina’s family discovers the controversial theme of her novel, their long-simmering conflicts over progressive and traditional beliefs explode. This ferociously funny and eloquent play by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Disgraced takes an unflinching look at the contradictions that make us who we are.
