ABOUT

AMERICAN FAST

by Kareem Fahmy

College basketball superstar Khady is about to carry her team through the NCAA Women’s Championships, but when March Madness coincides with Ramadan, Khady lies to her devout mother about holding her fast. When her mother goes public with the story of Khady’s devotion to both Ramadan and basketball, Khady finds herself the heroine of young Muslim women. Kareem Fahmy’s world premiere production questions family, faith, and what it means to win at all costs.
