A staged reading by Aamera Siddiqui
Directed by Suzy Messerole
In 1974, two young girls meet at a dinner party in Zambia. One girl would be sentenced to a life in solitary confinement, the other would become an artist diving into her story. In a world of "They Hate Freedom," "If you see something, say something" and "The Terror Alert is..." where can one find the truth? Freedom Daze is a journey through the media maze of (mis)information, indoctrination and the creation of an enemy class of "them."
Featuring Taous Khazem, Aaron Preusse, Eliza Rasheed, Aamera Siddiqui, Molly Van Avery & Mohamed Yabdri
