Pultizer-winning, Tony-nominated playwright, AYAD AKHTAR’s work is a hot knife through butter. In “The Who and the What,” he gets to the deepest questions about identity as a Pakistani father and his two American-born daughters grapple with an inter-generational culture clash over the power that stories wield and who controls how they are told. 

Directed by dianne k webb
with Deeba Ashraf, Karthik Chander, Hanin Alllahalih & James Monaghan
Andraes Hunt, narrator

The reading includes a post-show talk-back with the playwright, director and cast.

The reading will have ASL interpreters for our deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members.
