No Word In Guyanese For Me
About the Play
What's it like to be QUEER and MUSLIM?
No Word in Guyanese for Me is a poetic and lyrical play that is a beautiful exploration of religious and sexual identity. This is the journey of Hanna. From her childhood in Guyana to her adolescence in pre and post 9/11 New York City, from a disastrous arranged marriage to her sexual awakening, Hanna struggles to come to terms with her sexual identity, her devotion to her faith, and the right to be accepted for who she is, a gay Muslim. Written by Wendy Graf, directed by Julia Hurley, starring Ashley K. Nicholas.
