"Arabic & Broud"
Presented by AJYAL Theatrical GroupFor the beloved Im Hussein, who seems to court trouble innocently, the road to rehabilitation is paved with good intentions. Having been arrested and jailed for 10 months in "Me No Terrorist", she arrives home determined to make a positive contribution to society. She and her good friend, Im Elias, decide to start an organization with goals of projecting a positive image of Arabs and educating Americans about the Arab culture and people. As we said, Im Hussein has good intentions, but in typical fashion, her knowledge of English proves to be her downfall. When it comes to writing the Articles of Incorporation for her new organization, she and Im Elias encounter difficulties beyond their imagination. Somehow, in naming the organization in Arabic they forward their application to the state and city offices, the offices notify the authorities, including none other than the FBI. Just what Im Hussein needs! Performance is entirely in Arabic.
