Invasion! is a tornado of words, images and ideas, all centred around a magical name: Abulkasem. The play assaults our deepest prejudices about identity, race and language. At once hilarious, disturbing and poignant, this deeply subversive play deconstructs a threatening identity – the Arabic male – and forces us to confront our own cultural identity.
Invasion! By Jonas Hassen Khemiri, was TAC’s first production, played at the Selkirk Pub in Tooting between the 11th -24th February 2011.
