“Resonate(s) with such poignant and universal familiarity.” —Bill Raden, LA Weekly

 

Mahmoud is an exuberant, if overwhelmingly passionate, Iranian engineer-cum-taxi driver who relishes the chance to regale his passengers with his love of Persian culture. Emanuelos, a fabulously gay Spanish perfume salesman, can talk a mile-a-minute about his boyfriend, Behnam. And then there’s Tara, an awkwardly charming Iranian Canadian preteen who just wants to be “normal,” whatever that means. When the three strangers find themselves crossing paths in the busy streets of Toronto, their experiences with racism, sexism, homophobia, homesickness, and everything in between become intertwined in unexpected ways.

 

Tara Grammy is an Iranian Canadian actor and playwright. She was born in Tehran, but grew up in Toronto, with a few years spent in the United States and Germany. She has recently been featured in the 2014 CBS Sketch Comedy Diversity Showcase. Tara currently lives in Los Angeles but travels to Toronto often.
