NYC Premiere


By Rohina Malik

Fri Oct 20-Sat Nov 4

THE MECCA TALES tells the story of five Muslim women on the pilgrimage known as the Hajj. When their bus breaks down miles short of their destination, tempers flare and the women are tested in unexpected ways. They share their personal stories with each other in an attempt to move forward in their lives and find meaning in a spiritual journey seemingly gone awry. THE MECCA TALES received its world premiere at Chicago Dramatists in March 2015 and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Play.
