Forward Flux Productions Presents A SMALL HISTORY OF AMAL, AGE 7

Forward Flux Productions Presents A SMALL HISTORY OF AMAL, AGE 7Forward Flux Productions, with presenting partner Pratidhwani, is thrilled to present A SMALL HISTORY OF AMAL, AGE 7 by Lindsay Joelle, playing at West of Lenin (203 N 36th St Seattle, WA 98103) from September 19th - October 6th. This new play is currently being developed with the playwright after it was presented as part of The Flux Salon series last year. Joelle will be visiting Seattle several times this summer to work with the cast and creative team as this immersive production comes to life, and the production this fall will be the first time audiences will see the play fully produced. It also marks the fourth Forward Flux production in four years that started in a Salon reading, was developed with the playwright, and then presented as a fully staged production. Lindsay's play TRAYF recently played at Theater J in Washington DC, where the Washington Post said "Joelle's comedy is easygoing and confident, and her people have soul."

A SMALL HISTORY OF AMAL, AGE 7 is an immersive experience that is perfect for the entire family. Audiences will travel to Mumbai, India, where they will meet Amal, a 7 year old boy who uses his explorer's heart and a little Bollywood magic to fight the god of death. Exploring universal issues through the eyes of a small boy, this imaginative play weaves together heartache and triumph as it invites us to examine our connection to family, our city, and the world. It is inspired by Rabindranath Tagore's play, The Post Office (Bengali: Dak Ghar).

AMAL will be directed by Samip Raval, who is returning to the script after directing the Salon presentation last year. It will star Nabilah Ahmed as Amal, returning to the Forward Flux stage after her critically acclaimed turn in NO MORE SAD THINGS last fall. The cast also features Jay Athalye, Varsha Raghavan, Abhijeet Rane, Meenakshi Rishi, and Gurvinder Pal Singh.

The creative team features Wesley Fruge (Movement Director), Zanna King (Lighting Design), Pallavi Garg (Costume Design), Jordan Gerow (Set Design), Brian Murphy (Sound Design), Justin and Annie Duffiance (Technical Director / Set Builder), Karla Davenport (Properties Manager), Cassandra Thorpe (Production Manager), Rachel Culbertson (Stage Manager) and Shahbaz Khan (Assistant Director). The lead producers are Wesley Fruge (for Forward Flux) and Agastya Kohli (for Pratidhwani).

The play will run 80mins with no intermission. Tickets will go on sale in early August. Visit forwardflux.com to learn more.
