A poetic, hilariously relatable, and raw coming-of-age tale of A Middle Eastern American boy, Essa, whose parents are refugees. Essa confesses the experience of growing up in a country that doesn’t have a place for him. Join Essa as he navigates sexuality, the demands of a religion passed onto him from his parents, learning the English language, the fleetingness of youth, and a nicotine demon that won’t leave him alone. In a solo play told between different ages throughout his life, Essa gives us a soul-stirring exploration of identity and the relentless pursuit of self-discovery in a world that often feels indifferent. An honest testament to the eternal quest for belonging.

Age Guidance: 16+
