Then Came the Fall by Nahal Navidar
About the play:
Indian summer delivers hope and light on a gorgeous morning in Brooklyn Heights. Nasrin, an Iranian-American PhD student, and Donovan, an elevator repairman, plan for a bright future together, but when explosions from the other side of the East River shake their world, the ashes of fear and hatred quietly creep in and haunt Donovans mind. In a post 9/11 xenophobic environment where intolerance is the new status-quo, the couple finds themselves questioning if they will survive the fall.

About the playwright:
NAHAL NAVIDAR is an Iranian-born dramatist raised in upstate New York.  Her work is motivated by the exploration of social issues while employing magical elements to awaken the expanse of human emotion.  Nahals plays have been developed at Silk Road Rising, Ensemble Studio Theatre LA, The Vagrancy Writers Group, Rogue Machine Dramaturges Table, Coeurage Theatre CoLab Play Development, Pasadena Playhouse, Playwrights Arena, The Last Frontier Theatre Conference, Golden Thread Productions, Company of Angels New Play Series, The Kennedy Center, and The University at Albany.

In 2005, Nahal founded the Fabulous Invalid Theatre Company in the Micronesian island Saipan whose mission was to promote the diverse voices of the Marianas.  Nahals diverse and multi-cultured background has had the most profound impact on her writing.  As a Middle Eastern artist living in a post 9/11 world, her plays investigate issues of cultural identity and often feature characters who feel misplaced and yearn for a proverbial home.  Nahal received her M.F.A. training at U.S.C.s School of Dramatic Arts.  She is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America.
