This Truth is Clear and Evident by playwright Mahasin D. Shamsid-Deen opens March 3, 2012 at the historic Robinson Theater at 2903 Q Street in Richmond, Virginia.  There is a 2pm matinee and 8pm evening performance.  Tickets are $10.

This play is a modern take on traditional Islamic theater in that it is performed all in poetry.  It tells the story about the struggle and faith of Muslims in the Americas - North & South.  The all Male cast shares the story of how they - the Muslim they represent - developed and defined their Islamic identify and belief.  The poems deal with faith, love, renewal and submission as well as resistence, divisiveness and a search for a understanding of truth.  The poetic reflections are shared in English, Spanish, Arabic and Urdu as the audience is drawn into 'their' world and not only what they say, but how they say it. It is ultimately a story of understanding Man's desire to realize his place as the best of God's creation.  This Truth is part of the 2012 Acts of Faith Festival in Richmond, Virginia (
