WRITTEN BY JAMIL KHOURY
DIRECTED BY DALE HEINEN

SYNOPSIS

Set in Naperville, Illinois, this 45-minute video play, adapted from Jamil Khoury's stage play Mosque Alert, explores reactions to a proposed Islamic Community Center on the site of a beloved landmark. Allyship, municipal politics, and Islamophobia all intersect in this head-on collision between Not In My Backyard fear mongering, well-intentioned liberalism, and the peaceful practice of faith.
