DRAW THE CIRCLE
Written by and starring Mashuq Mushtaq Deen
Directed by Chay Yew


Join us for our Coffee Conversation after the show! Treats and coffee supported by Insomnia Cookies & Rival Bros. 

A trans male journey told entirely through the impressions of everyone around him in this virtuosic and poetic piece, originally developed in 2012 as part of InterAct's Beyond the Frame Festival. Playwright and performer Mashuq Mushtaq Deen inhabits every character -- from his bewildered American girlfriend to his traditional, Muslim family -- each trying to understand gender transition by their own terms. Funny, intimate, and deeply moving, Draw the Circle is about survival, transition, and the difficulties that sometimes surround unconditional love. InterAct is honored to welcome Deen and Obie Award-winning director/playwright Chay Yew back to present this unique and touching play.
