Silk Road Rising Extends MOSQUE ALERT

Silk Road Rising's timely world premiere of Jamil Khoury's Mosque Alert has been playing to enthusiastic houses since opening. By popular demand, performances of Mosque Alert have been extended through May 15th.

This extension adds eight new opportunities to see what Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times calls "precisely the right recipe for a solid argument play."

Inspired by the "Ground Zero Mosque" controversy in New York City, Mosque Alert opens a window into the world of three fictional families living in Naperville, Illinois, whose lives are interrupted by a proposed Islamic Center on the site of a beloved local landmark.

"The issues of 'Mosque Alert' are large, real and occurring here and now, so attention must be paid." - Windy City Times

Mosque Alert is extended through May 15, 2016, and performs in Pierce Hall at The Historic Chicago Temple Building, 77 W. Washington St, Lower Level, in Chicago.
