US Premier of 'No Longer Without You'

0 Comments on this event

This fall Le Skyroom is hosting the US Premiere of "No Longer Without You" as part of Crossing the Line Festival. The theatre show is a searing, outrageous, hilarious conversation between a real-life mother and daughter. Havva Oral is a traditional Muslim immigrant living in the Netherlands; her westernized daughter Nazmiye Oral is a journalist and modern Dutch woman. In the intimate circle of a staged living room, they confront each other’s faith, sexuality, and values, with both love and anger. Directed by Adelheid Roosen and set to live music by Seval Okyay, No Longer Without You is a theatrical look at an important rite.
