ABOUT THE PLAY: THE SAND BENEATH THE CITY

Leya Jahin is an Egyptian-American woman from a Muslim family who believes nothing and belongs nowhere. But when violence simmers and revolution erupts, she’s the one who gets the news that Detroit is one hour from apocalyptic destruction. In this one-woman play, LJ must confronts her (lack of) beliefs before a Voice goes full-on Sodom and Gomorrah over the city.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT:

Abbey Fenbert is a writer from Detroit, MI, whose work celebrates empathy, living in truth and women getting lots of lines. Her plays have been produced and developed by Matrix Theatre Company, the Boston Playwrights Theatre, Red Theatre Chicago, the Berkshire Playwrights Lab and the Vagrancy Theatre Company. She received the 2013 KCACTF Mark Twain Prize for Comic Playwriting and was twice named a Finalist for the National Playwrights Conference. She is currently based in Los Angeles, where she is Literary Manager for the Vagrancy.


This piece was originally produced at KNOW Theatre in Binghamton, NY, as part of the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival Region 1 Finalists show in 2014.
