Poetic, laughable, and raw coming-of-age tale of A Middle Eastern American boy, Essa, whose parents are refugees. Join Essa as he navigates sexuality, religion, the English language, and a nicotine demon that won’t leave him alone. In a one person show told between different ages throughout his life, Essa confesses to us the experience of growing up in a country that doesn’t have a place for him. A surprising new work, soon to be making its UK Premiere at Edinburgh Festival Fringe this coming August.

The Den Theatre is pleased to host Dummy in Diaspora on June 21-23, 2024 at 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood.

Closes June 23 @ 7:00pm
