Paloma and Ibrahim meet at NYU in a graduate literature course. He is devoutly Muslim, she is nominally Catholic, and their immediate attraction comes as a surprise to them both–and presents serious problems for dealing with their families. When they make an impulsive decision to visit the ancient cities in Spain where the world’s great religions once coexisted in peace, it has life-changing consequences for everyone. Crystal Sarakas talks with Rachel Lampert about the performance. The performance of Paloma at the Kitchen Theatre is the East Coast premiere of the play. Performances are May 1-22.
