-Mooney On Theatre
MAHMOUD is a one-woman show about an aging Iranian engineer-cum-taxi driver, a fabulously gay Spaniard, and a young Iranian-Canadian girl, all trying to get by the day-to-day grind in the city that they call home: Toronto.
Iranian born playwright/performer TARA GRAMMY (White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, SummerWorks/Necessary Angel/Volcano) invites us to watch as these characters' stories intertwine over the course of an hour, and through their connections with the audience, themselves, and each other, they explore the themes of displacement, immigration, home, and culture.
At once hilarious, insightful, and irreverent, MAHMOUD takes an exacting look at the political policies that hold immigrants as second class citizens, homophobia within the Iranian community, and the media-created stigmas surrounding Iranian culture.
