There's one raucously funny act and one heartbreaking one in this extraordinary play from Yussef El Guindi, here given its Chicago premiere by the Other Theatre Company. The title refers to an ill-considered liaison between Leila (Suzan Faycurry), an Egyptian-born author; her struggling photographer boyfriend, Rashid (Demetrios Troy); and an oblivious white guy named Doug (Mike Tepeli, an outrageous talent who, it must be said, is naked for almost a whole act). Even as her hair can luxuriate over her shoulders now without a veil, Leila is to Rashid a more inscrutable mystery than ever in this new country—he's convinced that a menacing secret lurks behind her silences. Director Jason Gerace lets the hurt unfold slowly, with irony and grace. —Max Maller
