The Hooves Belonged to the Deer

[title]The Hooves Belonged to the Deer[desc]Fringe Theatre Arts Barns 10330 84 Ave NW Edmonton, AB T6E 2G9 Tuesday, October 24, 2023, 7:30 – 9:45pm "The Hooves Belonged to the Deer" began as an audio drama commissioned by the Alberta Queer Calendar Project and went on to have a critically acclaimed world premiere in Toronto. And now, it's returned home to Edmonton! "The Hooves Belonged to the Deer, a smart and sensual new play by Makram the most excitingly theatrical piece of new writing to premiere in Toronto so far this season" - Kelly J. Nestruck, The Globe and Mail, Critics' Pick. When Izzy's family move to a small rural town, the young queer Muslim boy becomes the salvation pet project to the local Pastor Isaac. In his attempt to reconcile his sexuality and faith, Izzy invents an imagined Garden of Eden, where Adam and Hawa's (Eve in Arabic) relationship is turned upside down by the arrival of Steve, a beautiful, blue eyed, white skinned northerner. "Epic in its deliverance and its panorama, I experienced the same sort of sharp emotional jabs as when, for the first time, I saw "Angels in America" and "The Inheritance."
