A Co-Production of Rattestick Playwrights Theater and Lailou Productions
Set in the spring of 2011, five weeks into the civil uprising in Syria, Shesh Yakfollows Jameel (Zarif Kabier), a 30-something Syrian-American writer waiting in his New York apartment for a houseguest (Nakli) — a Syrian ex-patriot and leader in the anti-Syrian government movement. However, unexpected tensions lead them into a re-examination of their lives and choices.
Lailou Productions is a film, television, and theater production company based in New York City. Nakli, and Iranian-American producer, Nilou Safinya, founded the company to tell often-experienced but not-so-often told stories of universal humanity.
