Beyond Sacred is an interview-based theater production by Ping Chong + Company exploring the social challenges faced by young Muslims — at school, at work, and anywhere else. Hailing from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, the young performers share the common experience of coming of age in post-9/11 New York City, at a time of increasing Islamophobia. Reflecting a wide range of Muslim identities, these young people weave their true stories into a beautiful, funny, and intensely poignant cry for tolerance at a time when such sentiments are more necessary than ever.
