"Jihad Jones and the Kalashnikov Babes"
By Yussef El Guindi
Directed by Dick Reichman.
Cyrano's Off Center Playhouse
Needed: 3 men, 2 women
Jihad Jones is an Arab-American actor who was offered a career-making role as an insane, hostage-taking terrorist. He tries to convince himself that this "dream role" offer to work with the most respected director in the business is not a betrayal of his integrity as an actor or his Muslim culture. Hilarious satire spoofing Hollywood, but about a serious topic--ethnic stereotyping.
Rehearsals will begin in January 2014.
"Jihad Jones and the Kalashnikov Babes" plays February 14th through March 4th.
Ashraf: an Arab-American actor who has just played Hamlet
Cassandra: a major movie star; savvy and smart, has been around the block a time or two
Barry: the talent agent
Peggy: Barry's secretary and a big fan of Cassandra
Julius: one of the most respected directors in the film industry
