Haram: A Play Based on the Poetry of Dr Maher Hathout

Dear Friend, 

We kindly ask you to join us in bringing the artwork of this remarkable man to life. Though he is primarily known as a physician, public intellectual, interfaith advocate, and community activist - we have had the privilege of getting to know Dr Maher as an artist. He has written incredibly inspiring poetry and short stories for the better part of the last 60 years. We have painstakingly translated these works from Arabic to English and compiled them in the form of a stage play that we feel can speak to people from all walks of life.

Dr Hathout is a community leader, and we want this to be a community effort. His legacy is our legacy. Please support this campaign both financially and by sharing this page with your family / friends on social media. Your donations will help cover all logistical costs related to venue, equipment rental, insurance, casting, and marketing.  

As Dr H often says: "Art is a message from the soul, wrapped in a envelope of beauty" ... and his beautifully soulful message certainly deserves to be heard.

Sincerely,

- Wesam Nassar / Samira Idroos / Susu Attar / Omar Offendum

More information about the play:

Haram is an abstract drama that tells the tale of the universal struggle of love and war; the love of a couple, of a people, of an ideal world in the face of tyranny and oppression. The story is centered on the tragic parting of a couple, a Man and Woman deeply in love in troubled times. Should he leave to join the resistance and abandon his beloved? Is it possible their love not to be soured by the eroding world they live in? Whatever choice they make, inevitably, for one reason or another, they are left with Haram.  

The story of the beloved is broken up by four abstract vignettes that showcase the poetry of Dr. Hathout with silent action on stage and projected imagery and music.
