A GOING AWAY PARTY PLAY

SEPT 19-OCT 27

by Keyanna Khatiblou
directed by James Fowler
World Premiere Production

Mina is throwing a party for her closest friends and for you, the audience. Over the course of the party, the friends play games, reflect on the current American socio-political landscape, and discover truths about the story of Mina’s parents falling in love and staying in love while fleeing the Iranian Revolution. A Going Away Party Play is a celebration of multicultural identities and an exploration of what it means to leave or lose your home country.

 

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

Keyanna Khatiblou is an Arizona-raised, Chicago-based writer and performer. After four years acting and devising in the Chicago storefront theatre scene, Khatiblou splits her time between playwriting and screenwriting. She likes the immediacy of having an audience right in the room with her plays, and loves the longform storytelling of TV.

Her plays have been developed and produced in Chicago at About Face Youth Theatre, Theater on the Lake, The Women’s Theatre Alliance, The Jackalope Playwright’s Lab, Prop Thtr, and the Evanston Children’s Theater, as well as Theatre Masters (Aspen, CO and Off-Broadway, NYC).
