Selling Kabul

Performance Dates

In 2013, a sister secretly shelters her translator brother from an increasingly powerful Taliban while he awaits the ever-delayed arrival of a promised American visa. On the eve of his son’s birth, the walls begin to close in, threatening him, her and everyone they love in a heart-racing exposé with devastating echoes to the present day.

Breathtaking and unpredictable through the final curtain, this unflinching exploration exposes the human toll of American withdrawal.

“[Sylvia] Khoury’s delicately crafted play . . . etches the cost of tyranny, corruption and terror in intensely human terms.” ― The Berkshire Eagle
