Two Woman Show:
Intisar, a veiled African-American Muslim student, thought she might finally fit in when she enrolled for a year abroad at the American Egyptian University in Cairo. Samar, her Egyptian, non-veiled roommate, enlists Intisar’s help in creating an internet blog about the controversial practice of wearing veils..or not and hopefully helping to bridge the gap between the West and the Middle-East. They and their project, however, are overtaken and in danger of being overwhelmed by events leading up to and including the beginnings of the recent Egyptian revolution. In struggling with events such as a university ban on wearing burkas, an anti-American protest/riot, and Samar’s arrest and forced virginity test, Intisar and Samar are surprised to find themselves on opposite sides of a bitter cultural divide. Will the violent events and emotions leading up to the revolution salvage their friendship or shatter it?

Character Breakdown / Project Needs
This is a 2 woman show with VERY specific character traits, please read below:

Intisar - A black, African American Muslim Woman, in her early 20s. She wears a Hijab religiously and wholly believes in what it represents. She speaks broken Arabic though she is from West Philadelphia. She is intelligent, passionate and strong willed though her drive can make her a little naive.

Samar - A Middle Easterner, Egyptian Muslim Woman, in her early 20s. She does not wear the Hijab except when praying. She is wealthy, cosmopolitan, très chic and stylish, totally up to date with Western and Parisian fashion. She speaks Arabic, and English fluently. She is very friendly and sociable, and code switches between modesty in public and going wild in private. Samar understands her place in society and rebels against it, she is strong willed, outspoken and a fighter.
