Meet Abdul Samee: his father is Iraqi, his mother is Puerto Rican-but if you ask him, he’ll say he’s Italian. Longing to shed his cultural identity he changes his name to Sam, marries an American and does everything in his power to turn his back on his heritage. But when Sam meets Yasmina, a beautiful woman from his father’s homeland, he begins to learn that a tree without roots cannot stand for long.

A world premiere
Part of 100 Club and 3-Play Subscription Series

The world premiere of YASMINA’S NECKLACE is made possible thanks to the generous contributions of Dilnaz and Qaiser Waraich, John W. and Jeanne M. Rowe, and Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation. Moderated post-show dialogues follow Thursday and Friday performances.
