About the event

Zahara By Nigel Knutzen

We wage wars, at what cost, to what end...

Queen Zahara of Arda has been repeatedly insulted by her cousin, Princess Soraya of Indara, and as such she decides to go to war with the Indarians, something she would have liked to avoid altogether.  But as a Queen, she must defend her Kingdom and respond to the challenge posed to her authority.

What ensues is a deep political intrigue and the consequent war that portrays the paradoxical contemplations and actions of the Queen, cruel yet compassionate, loyal yet calculating, fierce yet uplifting, passionate yet grounded.

The play inspired by Shakespeare's Henry V, takes on diverse cultural references, including in its cast to make it relatable and relevant to the present times. The play explores 'Fear' and 'Desire' the two strongest emotions that propel the irony of the 'War' we wage in the hope for 'Peace'.

This last production is a collaboration of  individuals representing our brilliant and yet underserved cultural groups of the Native Americans, New Americans (refugees/immigrants) people with disabilities, Veterans, LGBTQ+, and seniors.
