SATC to Offer Free Reading of WE ARE A HUNDRED, 9/30
In Jonas Hassen Khemiri's third play WE ARE A HUNDRED we meet a trio of women: A young revolutionary, a middle-aged living within her comfort zone, and an old truth seeker. Three persons who, in their fight to define themselves, start to realize that they are the same person. Join Jonas Hassen Khemiri's unpredictable world where everyone fights to define the meaning of the word "we". Khemiri, born in Sweden in 1978, is the author of three novels and six plays. His first novel, One REd Eye, received in 2004 the Borås Tidning award for best literary debut. His second novel, Montocore, (2011) won several literary awards including the Swedish Radio Award for best novel of the year. Khemiri's works have been translated into more than fifteen languages and his plays have been performed by over 40 international companies.
