Autobiography of a Terrorist

Golden Thread Productions

By Saïd Sayrafiezadeh. A play about growing up Iranian and Jewish-American during the Iran hostage crisis. Will Saïd ever be able to just fit in? Whiting Award–winning playwright and memoirist Sayrafiezadeh (Brief Encounters with the Enemy, When Skateboards Will Be Free) brilliantly pokes fun at the complications of hyphenated identity in America.


This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman had to say about Autobiography of a Terrorist :

This world premiere by award-winning New York memoirist/fiction writer/playwright Saïd Sayrafiezadeh, directed by Evren Odcikin in a Golden Thread production, examines the author’s own experience of growing up American, as the son of an Iranian father and Jewish mother, during the Iran hostage crisis. The author “pokes fun at the complications of hyphenated identity in America,” resulting in what’s been described as an absurd and comical piece.
