The 21st birthday celebration of Ghafur the youngest son of Khulsoom and Salman, is the catalyst for three generations to convene at the family home – a day in the life of a modern Pakistani-American family. Post 9/11 and the scape-goating of Muslim Americans form the backdrop to the tensions which rise and spark among the six eclectic characters in Wajahat Ali’s The Domestic Crusaders, which culminates in an almighty family battle. Ali’s domestic comedy provides an incisive commentary on the nature of the American Dream post-9/11.
“Exactly the sort of theatre we need today.” Emma Thompson, actress
“A source of laughter and understanding” Yann Martel, Life of Pi Author
