Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith
by Yussef El Guindi.
What if Neil Simon wrote a loveable comedy about a Muslim-American family trying to hold itself together amidst the misunderstandings that run amuck when generations collide? Ten Acrobats in an Amazing Leap of Faith is the story of the Fawzi family, an Egyptian immigrant family struggling to find their place within American society. Come and take a delightful leap with us and catch a glimpse into a community rarely seen so intimately in contemporary media today. What will you find out? As El Guindi has said, “we’re just as screwed up, and normal, as other families.”
