RAG HEAD: AN AMERICAN STORY to be Presented at Theater Row as Part of the United Solo Festival

Kahani Productions will present RAG HEAD: AN AMERICAN STORY at Theater Row as part of the United Solo Festival, Friday, October 28, 2022.

This is a 16+ accompanied by an adult event.

"RAG HEAD is best described as an awakened heart - that feeling of opening your heart to the world and having it touched. Sundeep Morrison creates and performs an interwoven story that leads the audience in a journey of love, hate, interdependence, and impermanence, challenging us all to be the best humans we can be."

~ Arno Michaelis, Reformed White Supremacist & Activist

On August 5, 2012 a white supremacist entered a Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and murdered six people. There has been an alarming and well documented increase in hate crimes committed against Sikhs, Muslims and other immigrant communities. With their turbans and long beards, Sikhs have become easy targets in the United States. There are +500,000 Sikhs in the U.S., many of whom have been subject to Xenophobic harassment or violence while over 70% of Americans don't know who Sikhs are or what their faith entails.

RAG HEAD: An American Story is a solo show written, directed and performed by Sundeep Morrison.

In RAG HEAD, Morrison explores hate, hope and American identity while portraying seven inextricably linked characters whose lives are forever changed by one hateful act.

After delayed performances due to the pandemic, RAG HEAD will make its New York City debut at the United Solo Festival on Friday October 28th, 2022.
