Taking place four months after 9/11, Barriers deals with the Chinese/Pakistani Abbas family, and the loss of their oldest son Nabhil at the World Trade Center. As this multicultural family begins to disintegrate, we piece together the past each one hides, and the future they all share. Originally mounted in 2002 and then subsequently co-produced with the Asian American Theater Company in San Francisco and Los Angeles in 2003, Barriers is returning to the stage to look back on the ten-year anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy. The play is written by Rehana Mirza and directed by Colete Robert.
