A play by Necati Öziri

There are moments in which everything comes together. Arda Yilmaz’s 18th birthday, for example, where she searches for the fragments of a language that recalls memories of childhood in Almanya and a German-Turkish family history amidst the turmoil of “guest” work and the Turkish putsch. Above else, Arda is searching for an unknown father. A fade-out on the last track of the record of your life.

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents World Voices: International Play Festival 2019: play readings with some of the most significant theatre artists from Germany, all connected to the Gorki Theater in Berlin—a safe haven for immigrant, refugee and international theatre artists in Europe.

The International Play Festival generates a conversation on art, politics, dreams, war, and philosophy, meant to give American audiences a rich awareness of the greater global dialogue.
