Kneeling Down at Noon

Physical Plant teams up with St. Edward’s University to present this original play about Islam — or, more particularly, about the lives of a handful of Muslims struggling to find, share, and live their daily faith. From the devout wife of an atheist activist, to the doubting son struggling with prejudice in America, to the secret policeman twisting Islam to his own ends, each character is a lens onto this complex and much-maligned religion. But more than that, the play folds these characters into remarkable stories that undermine, amplify, and invigorate the ways they understand God — and the will of God on earth.
