The best of Los Angeles theater this fall
This premiere follows two brothers, both of whom are musicians. One, Eric, is a classical pianist and a Christian, the other, Bilal, is a jazz bassist and Muslim. When Bilal is accused of being a terrorist and jailed while awaiting trial, Eric tries to stay connected by pushing aside his own classical aspirations in order to learn his brother's jazz style. Separated by prison bars and religion, the brothers use music to stay connected. As the trial progresses, Eric struggles to decide if he believes the charges against his older brother, or if they are false accusations.
