INFO: http://www.nationalhispaniccenter.org

Camino Real Productions and NHCC are pleased to announce the World Premiere of Paloma by Anne García-Romero, directed by Gil Lazier. Inspired by Ring of the Dove, a remarkable eleventh century Muslim Spanish treatise on love by Ibn Hazm, Paloma is the playwright’s response to the post 9/11 climate in this country. She is intrigued by the notion of convivencia. How did Muslims, Christians and Jews co-exist peacefully in eleventh century Spain when religious intolerance persists in present day U.S. society? Paloma explores the lives of Ibrahim, a Moroccan-American and practicing Muslim, who falls in love with Paloma, a woman of Puerto Rican descent and nominal Catholic, while they study ancient Muslim Spain at New York University in 2003. The couple soon travels to Spain where they grapple with their religious differences and then tragedy strikes. The play also toggles between various months in 2004 as Ibrahim and Jared, his friend and lawyer who practices the Jewish faith, face legal ramifications resulting from Ibrahim and Paloma’s relationship. In a way, the play is a prayer for greater co-existence in our present age.vendini-ticket-button179.jpg
