THE MECCA TALES
Written and Directed by Rohina Malik
Live Oud Music by Scott Wilson
Five Muslim women meet for the first time at the pilgrimage in Mecca known as the Hajj. Grace, the group’s leader, requires each of the pilgrims to reveal her unique and personal reason for making this journey. The women must choose whether to reveal themselves and go forward, or to guard their stories and stay behind. Poetic and transporting, The Mecca Tales explores the power of ritual and redemption. Commissioned by the Goodman Theater, and developed at Chicago Dramatists, The Mecca Tales has been nominated for a Jeff Award for Best New Play 2016.
