Theater: AMM(I)GONE at Long Wharf

May 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free – $49

MAY 28 – JUN 23, 2024

Creator and performer Adil Mansoor brings us on his deeply personal journey to translate and adapt the play Antigone with his Ammi (his mother). Despite the deep love between them, their relationship is strained – Ammi struggles to accept Adil’s queerness and turns towards her faith in an attempt to save her son in the afterlife. Adil turns to an ancient Greek theatrical text to break the silence between them. Amm(i)gone asks: How do you choose between love and faith? What is lost (or gained) in translation, and what transcends language itself? Through Greek tragedy, teachings from the Quran, and audio conversations in Urdu and English, Mansoor creates a theatrical blend of lecture and personal story about locating love across faith.
