THE NAME OF GOD
IS IT EVER TOO LATE TO
Opening the inaugural season of Wayward Voices is Bismillah, Or in the Name of God by Nakisa Aschtiani. Based in Laguna Beach, CA, Bismillah tells the story of long-time Iranian-American friends questioning their beliefs and fighting for change after a bar shooting changes their lives forever. Playwright, Aschtiani poses the question, “is it ever too late to love unconditionally?” Director Ani Marderosian is at the helm of the production. Putting the story and voices of the characters at the forefront, Marderosian and the cast reimagine the stage play as a radio play.
