Kiss

BY GUILLERMO CALDERÓN
DIRECTED BY FADI SKEIKER

January 31 – February 19, 2023

Tickets

A group of American actors performing a Syrian soap opera are shocked to realize the limits of their own cultural understanding.

Two couples at dinner. An unexpected profession of love. An untimely proposal. A stolen kiss. But when the soap opera gets interrupted, the tables are turned on the performers … and the audience.

This daring new play is directed by Syrian-born University of the Arts Professor Fadi Skeiker, making his Wilma debut, and features members of the Wilma HotHouse Company.

“The play asks: What does it mean when someone else is representing you?” Skeiker said.

The play was a hit when it had its American Premiere in DC. The Washington Post called it “urgent and gripping.”

“I laughed uproariously, and I was moved to tears. …. This is art that has an impact. … Do not, I repeat do not, miss this show.”DCTheatreArts
