Mahmoud is an irreverent & hilarious one-woman show about an aging Iranian engineer-cum-taxi driver, a fabulously gay Spaniard, and a young Iranian-Canadian girl, all trying to get by the day-to-day grind in a busy metropolitan city. Their stories come together over the course of an hour, and through their connections with the audience, themselves and each other, they explore the themes of displacement, immigration, home, and culture.
The show has humble roots in Toronto, but after getting rave reviews around the city, it was nominated to take part in The Toronto Fringe festival. Mahmoud cleaned up, and was then invited to The New York Fringe Series. This whirlwind tour is now in Los Angeles, where its showing until the end of summer 2013.
