WEST COAST PREMIERE Damascus follows the journey of Hassan, a financially struggling Somali-American taxi driver at the Minneapolis airport, and Lloyd, a stranded teenager who is desperate to catch a flight out of Chicago's O'Hare. Breaking rules to accept this unusual fare seems like it's worth the risk... until it isn't. An intense thriller about privilege, paranoia, and the assumptions we make about one another, Damascus is a breakthrough play from a writer whose star is rising.
