The Matter of Nadiyah Hassan

4 W, 1 M  /  90 Minutes



When the only black, Muslim student at an all-girls parochial school finds herself in a compromising position, the administration must decide whether she stays or goes. The question is: what criteria will determine her fate? Emily Acker's explosive new drama evaluates race, religion, education and our collective understanding of the American dream.
