We Swim, We Talk, We Go to War by Mona Mansour

While trying to navigate the currents of the Pacific, an Arab-American woman and her nephew, who has enlisted in the military, dive into the murky waters of family, identity and politics in Golden Thread Productions' We Swim, We Talk, We Go to War. Adventurous and playful, this world premiere play takes the form of a literal conversation on stage, and expands into a nuanced dialogue about what it means to be American, Arab and Arab-American at our current moment in time. Lebanese-American writer Mona Mansour returns with her fourth production -- the most ambitious and personal to date. The play offers its audience an opportunity to examine America’s relationship with its military, as well as its growing Middle Eastern immigrant population. It blurs the lines between “us” and “them,” and presents a provocative exploration of the tragic and indelible ripples of war. Evren Odcikin directs.
