Room Enough (For Us All)

1 M, 4 W

Fatimah, a recently widowed mother, is determined to have it all. In an attempt to set things right by her queer daughter, Jamillah, she invites her to return home after a 10-year absence from the family. Fatimah plans to bring a new progressive Eid Holiday Festival to Masjid Al-Noor, but her son, Abdullah, feels that in order to protect the family legacy, he needs to fight against these changes. Room Enough (For Us All) is an insightful journey into the struggle of one contemporary African-American Muslim family to come together, despite everything trying to tear them apart.

Emily Black is a Total Gift

12 Piece Band + 4 Actors

This musical play reimagines the Mary Poppins trope in the 21st Century. Emily Black, a young Black woman, finds herself entwined with a white, well-meaning liberal family in Tribeca. When the father goes missing, Emily and the children set out to find him. What follows is a darkly comic musical journey through the five boroughs of New York City, brazenly embracing the weird and awkward class and racial divides along the way.

Night of Power 

4 W 1 M

A coming of age/family drama that investigates how the very institutions that were built to save us, fail us and fall apart. We spend the night with the Salaams, an African American Muslim family in Houston, Texas (1989) as they celebrate the 27th day of Ramadan. A hurricane hits while the Salaams come to terms with their darkest secrets.

There is Something about a Clock Face 

2 W

Minana comes home after being in America for 5 years. She decides to throw a party. How was America? What are you going to do next? Is it a Homecoming or Homegoing party? Either way Minana has a single answer for all the questions. There is Something about a Clockface asks what happens when you get your freedom and you find it’s not what you imagined.

Rum For Sale

1 W 2 M

Inspired by The Lime Bar, a Chris Ofili painting, Rum for Sale follows C. Max Tate, and his wife, Nikki, to Port of Spain, Trinidad. They're seeking a new start because NYC is tough and well, America is changing. Nikki and Max find an abandoned rum distillery and Aufidius. This is hopeful AF, maybe even paradise! However, where rum is involved, life is sweet, but weirdly still complicated.
