A critically acclaimed stage-show based on hate crimes against Sikhs is set for a four week run in California, starting from September 20th until October 16th.
Details on the show and tickets are available here.
The Sikh community of the US (approximately 500,000) have suffered from targeted abuse due to mistaken conflations between the Sikh physical identity and terrorism. In 2012 this reached a peak when a white-supremacist invaded Wisconsin’s Oak Creek Gurdwara and shot indiscriminately at worshippers, killing six people.
Put together by Sundeep Morrison (writer/performer) and Amrita Dhaliwal (director), the play is described by producer Jenn Prince as ‘A brave piece of theatre that somehow brings levity and joy to its topical and tragic themes. Sundeep Morrison navigates her characters with grace and humour.’
Sundeep said of her creation, ‘Rag Head was written to spread awareness about the Sikh community’s struggle of being victims of prejudice in the United States. Rag Head illustrates how were are all connected. The only way to stand united as Americans is to educate each other about our differences’.
Location: The Complex Hollywood, The Ruby Theater 6476 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90038
