Image 3 Damascus


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.

"Buckle up for Damascus... Bennett Fisher's excellent script has been optioned for a film. It's the kind of work you will want to see first on stage."
– Buzz Center Stage - Chicago

"In your face is probably not the right way to describe the close-up experience of watching Bennett Fisher’s harrowing play Damascus… Eye to unblinking eye would be more accurate.”
