Writers Theatre presents A Distinct Society. A quiet library that straddles the border of the U.S. and Canada becomes an unlikely crucible for five people from around the world. When an Iranian family, separated from one another by a travel ban, uses the library as a meeting place, the head librarian, a U.S. border patrol officer and a local teenager must choose between breaking the law and saving themselves. A Distinct Society delivers a moving story about the many things—family, food, art, love, and politics—that can either divide or unite us. Inspired by true events, this poignant and funny new play, written and directed by the gifted artist Kareem Fahmy, makes its Chicago debut at Writers Theatre. Meet the cast and buy tickets here.  

Admission Fee Price varies.
