P&P Live! Ehsaneh Sadr — A DOOR BETWEEN US - with Ausma Zehanat Khan

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 18, 2020 - 5:00pm

When the matriarch of Sarah's family arranged her marriage to Ali, it was with the intention of uniting two compatible families. However, as the 2009 election becomes contentious, political differences emerge and Sarah's conservative family tries to call off the wedding. Sarah and Ali, however, have fallen in love and, against the wishes of their parents, insist on going through with the marriage.

Sarah's cousin, Sadegh, is a staunch supporter of the government and a member of the Basij, the volunteer militia tasked with arresting protestors and shutting down speech against the regime. When Sarah impulsively shelters a protestor in their car on the drive home from her wedding, she sets off a chain of events that can either unmask the government's brutality or ruin them all. These characters' stories weave together in an unflinching, humorous, and at times terrifying story that demonstrates that, even as the world is falling apart around us, choices matter.

Sadr will be in conversation with Ausma Zehanat Khan, author of The Unquiet Dead, The Bloodprint, and more.
