About this product
- DescriptionA new play about our prejudices and identity in the age of suicide bombings in Europe by award-winning Swedish playwright and velist Jonas Hassen Khemiri. A car has exploded. A city has been crippled by fear. Amor wanders around the city, doing his best to blend in. He's going to exchange a drill head. He's going to call his brothers. He's going to stop stalking Valeria and take care of his long-since-dead grandma. Most important of all: he must t attract any suspicious glances. But what is rmal behaviour? Who is a potential perpetrator? And how many times can Shavi call in one day? For 24 intense hours we find ourselves in Amor's head, where the lines between criminal and victim, love and chemistry, and fantasy and reality become blurrier and blurrier.
