American Stage is proud to present the first play discovered through our 21st Century Voices: New Works Festival. Ms. Lepcio’s STRAIT OF GIBRALTAR was selected among more than 300 submissions of new plays from across the country.
In this sexy romance turned thriller, Miriam, a young American woman, and Sameer, a Muslim man from Morocco, meet at a party and fall in love at first sight. When Sameer tells Miriam he’s undocumented, she offers to help, but is everything as it seems? A smart, riveting play that looks at love, truth, prejudice, and civil rights in the age of the Patriot Act.
