Human Cargo Theatre says
A child suicide bomber in Pakistan, a Canadian soldier in Kandahar, an Afghan immigrant in Toronto. Three worlds collide in this play about love and loss in the time of war.

Based on interviews conducted with families of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Pakistan Army, and the Taliban, The Road to Paradise is presented in English/Dari with a cast of Canadian, Afghan and Pakistani actors, and explores how the war in Afghanistan is affecting the lives of women and children.

Surtitles will translate all Dari dialogue into English. Following the world premiere at Buddies, the production will tour to the Aga Khan Museum on December 2 at 8pm.
