The Devils Between Us, by Sharifa Yasmin

December 3-9, 2021, William Inge Memorial Theatre

For Latifa, a trans woman who came of age in the American South, a return to her childhood home means revisiting her roots, her Muslim religion, and a shared trauma that tore apart teenage lovers. When Latifa comes sputtering into George’s auto shop and life, the surprising reunion leaves them conflicted and yearning for closure. Her return presents an opportunity to close a chapter in her life with the burial of her father and to push an old friend to explore his values. In turn George shares an unlikely way he always stayed part of Latifa’s life and begins his journey to self-acceptance.
