Something just happened. A car. An explosion. Amor has an important errand to run. He walks the city streets with his backpack and his cell phone, doing his best to blend in. But what looks normal? This funny, fierce show-down with paranoia takes us on an intense 24-hour journey inside one young man’s head, as the lines between reality and fantasy, criminal and victim, become increasingly unreliable.
Reviews of I Call My Brothers:
“Intelligent and humorous…a sensitive and thoughtful expression of the alienation one man can feel in the wake of a tragedy…”
“[I Call My Brothers] again announces Khemiri’s shrewd, inventive stagecraft. A simpler play might hinge on Amor’s guilt, but Khemiri’s drama… has more complicated concerns.”
–The Village VOICE
“Highly recommended. A heartfelt, compassionate show that keeps you guessing.”
