Portland Stage Company's latest production, Veils, follows two Muslim women in Egypt. One is American, one is Egyptian.
A contemporary drama about bridging the gap between the West and the Middle East. When Intisar, an African American Muslim student, arrives in Cairo for a year abroad, she hopes to finally be understood. She's quickly enlisted by her exuberant Egyptian roommate, Samar, to help create a blog debating the practice of wearing veils, but when the Arab Spring intervenes, revolution threatens to overtake their friendship.
