Selling Kabul

Selling Kabul

The New York premiere of Selling Kabul, written by Sylvia Khoury and directed by Tyne Rafaeli, is at Playwrights Horizons. Details on Selling Kabul tickets in New York are to be confirmed at a later date.

Taroon once served as an interpreter for the U.S. military in Afghanistan. Now the Americans — and their promises of safety — have withdrawn, and he spends his days in hiding, a target of the increasingly powerful Taliban. On the eve of his son’s birth, Taroon must remain in his sister’s apartment or risk his life to see his child. With shattering precision, Sylvia Khoury’s thriller tracks the human cost of immigration policy, and the overlooked legacy of America’s longest, and ongoing, war.

Performances are staged at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater at Playwrights Horizons.
