Poetic Theater Productions and Hypokrit Theatre Company present
Eh Dah? Questions For My Father
Book, Music and Lyrics By Aya Aziz
WINNER of “Outstanding Book” and “Outstanding Individual Performance” 2016 New York Musical Festival
“Ghetto-Hippie-Arab-Commie-China Doll” Aya was shaped by the eclectic community of New York City. But Aya’s father, an Egyptian-American world-traveler, remained a mystery, as did her Muslim family. In this solo musical, Aya enacts the world she came from and the family she went in search of. With a range of accents, voices, and zany characters, Aya’s story deals with contemporary conflicts identity, the culture war, Islamophobia, all while asking “Eh Dah?”-what is this?!
This productions is being brought back to the stage by Poetic Theater Productions and Hypokrit Theatre Company after its official selection and successful run in the New York Musical Theatre Festival 2016.
