The Muslim ban didn’t happen overnight. Its seeds were planted long before 45 or 9/11. This is a journey through the media maze of (mis)information and indoctrination that has led to the creation of an enemy class of “them.” Using a multi-media approach and weaving together multiple storylines, the play follows an artist’s quest to discover how a childhood acquaintance, “The Girl in the Yellow Dress,” came to be sentenced to a life in solitary confinement. In a world of “They hate freedom,” “If you see something, say something,” and “The Terror Alert is…,” where can one find the truth? The playwright gathered multiple perspectives from community salons involving 150 people from 25 different cultural and religious backgrounds. The Muslim majority cast comes from all different backgrounds and five continents. Post-show discussions after most performances include an “Islamophobia in Minnesota and What You Can Do to Combat It” discussion led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) on Dec. 2.
