On Friday, October 4 at 7 p.m., the play <i>Noor</i>, will be performed in Theater 2 of the Cultural Arts Center at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. Noor tells the story of three young Muslim men who are faced with the kidnapping of their younger sister by unidentified soldiers during Ramadan. As the brothers grapple with how to rescue Noor while preserving their honor, they undergo the same crisis within their Islamic beliefs that is occurring throughout the world as fundamentalism, mysticism, and modernity clash.
Heralded by <i>The Washington Post</i> as "a paean to religious tolerance," Noor debuted at American University in September to sold out audiences. Attendance at the performance meets the multicultural/diversity requirement.
