I Call My Brothers


A car has exploded. A city has been crippled by fear. Amor wanders the city, doing his best to blend in. His best to become invisible and not attract any suspicious glances. But what is normal behaviour? And who is a potential perpetrator? Over twenty-four hours, internationally-renowned and award-winning playwright Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s fierce, funny, and explosive play explores where the lines between criminal and victim, and fantasy and reality, blur.

Written in response to the Stockholm terrorist attacks of 2010, I Call My Brothers began as a New York Times column Khemiri published just one week after the suicide bombing and is being adapted for this DC production.
