PLAYS: DEARBORN

Dearborn is a story of two unconventional Arab-American teenage cousins, who work together in their family’s gas station.  Sarai Ayoub doesn’t have the tools to combat harassment during an internship in the auto industry, until a troubled son of one of the most powerful men in Detroit offers her a chance at revenge. Amir dreams of being a comic, and can only hint at the truth of his sexual orientation within his comedy sets. 
A timely drama that explores the intersection of sexism, racism, and homophobia in the aftermath of the Me Too movement, Dearborn is the second part of a cycle of plays about Arab Detroit following Roar, which originally premiered at The New Group.
