The Myth Project is a workshop production of three unique theatrical experiences. We tasked three emerging directors with creating a contemporary piece inspired by a Middle Eastern myth of their choice. Exploring and illuminating universal themes, and breaking open modern and ancient misperceptions, the result is not to be missed!




The In-Between, written and directed by Kareem Fahmy, is a tense supernatural thriller about the oppositions that define our existence and the eternal conflict between light and dark where humankind is caught perilously in the middle. The cast includes Leila Buck, Sara Buffamanti, Eric T. Miller and Babak Tafti.

phoenicia flowers, written and directed by Noelle Ghoussaini, is a poetic tale of Phoenician gods living on a tourist site in modern day Lebanon. The beautiful Adonis is resigned to fading away when a young boy attempts to changes his fate. Gods and humans struggle to cope with loss and rediscover the spirit of their lives and land. The cast includes Monte Bezell, LaChrisha Brown, Peter Ganim, Fahim Hamid and Imran Sheikh.

I Am Gordafarid, conceived and directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh, weaves together the story of the female warrior, the modern-day naqqal (storyteller) fighting to keep her art form alive, and the contemporary, Iranian-American theatre makers themselves. Through poetry, myth, movement and music, they grapple with the question of ownership, and the myths and realities of being Iranian, American, and somewhere in between. The cast includes Layla Khoshnoudi, Sade Namei, and Leyla Modirzadeh.
