At Fatima’s new high school, she’s the only one wearing a hijab. Her parents transferred her after graffiti reading “All Muslims must die” was found on the wall of her old school. But there’s plenty of ignorance and assumptions at her new school too. It isn’t until she begins an unlikely friendship with Jorah, a young man with a troubled reputation, that she starts to feel less like an outsider. How can she balance this new relationship with her family’s faith? What is it like to be 16 years old, a girl, a Muslim, and a refugee all at the same time?
Jabber will engage students in meaningful discussions on the judgments and assumptions we make based on each other’s perceived differences. This story challenges stereotypes and encourages real conversation around race, religion and identity. Through its use of humor and creativity, the production brings a new, relevant and age appropriate story to student audiences.
