Playwright and Director Kareem Fahmy

Capital REP’s annual showcase of new works and the first virtual presentation of NEXT ACT! New Play Summit 9, streaming July 13-16.
The award winning play A DISTINCT SOCIETY is by Kareem Fahmy, a Canadian-born playwright and director of Egyptian descent. Here he talks with HMM’s Andrea Cunliffe about his work as director and playwright and this award winning play. The play, selected from more than 350 submissions from across the country, is inspired by true stories of Iranian families reunited at the Haskell Free Library & Opera House, built upon the international border between Stanstead, Quebec and Derby Line, Vermont.

The reading of A DISTINCT SOCIETY will air Wednesday, July 15 at 7 p.m. The NEXT ACT! New Play Summit seeks to highlight new works that use theatre to address injustices, inequities, and cultural collisions, providing a voice for the unheard and unrepresented. All Next Act! events will air on theREP’s Facebook page, Proctors Collaborative YouTube and Open Stage Media’s On-Demand Channel. More information can be found
