About the play:A journalist and her colleague find themselves unexpectedly "detained" by a band of insurgents as bombs rain down on a wartorn landscape. Her captors offer her one telephone call - a chance to reconnect with the mother she hasn't spoken to in 10 years, now living in Turkey and preparing for a festival celebrating the great Sufi poet Rumi. History, religion, and the beauty of whirling dervishes collide in this powerful, ripped-from-the-headlines portrait of a world at war.
