Introduction with the director Jan Stephan Schmieding at 7.15 pm (in German)

Play by Ayad Akhtar

"The Who & the What" is a play in which an emancipated young Muslim woman by the name of Zarina writes a book of the same name. She casts a critical eye over the Koran, the image of the Prophet and the role of the woman in Islam – until, that is, her father Afzal gets wind of it. He is naturally less enamoured with her interpretation of his faith. And there we have the fault lines within a Muslim family in modern America. Potentially explosive stuff, that needs to be handled with care by experts – and that is exactly what the author, director and cast are. As the "Kronenzeitung" newspaper in Austria said about the play: "Everything is on point".
