The cast of Damascus.


By Bennett Fisher

Directed by Cody Estle

Season 30

May 11, 2018–Jun 23, 2018

Hassan is a Somali-American airport shuttle driver in Minneapolis, struggling to make ends meet as more and more of his customers switch to Uber and Lyft. So when a stranded teenager at the airport pays Hassan to take him to Chicago, it seems like it’s worth the risk. Until it isn’t. A claustrophobic thriller about privilege, paranoia, and the assumptions we make about one another, helmed by the new Artistic Director of Raven Theatre and director of such hits as Northlight Theatre’s By the Water and Raven’s A Loss of Roses.
