BY DAVID ADJMI
Sixteen year old Lily knows nothing beyond the Syrian-Jewish community in Brooklyn where she lives a cloistered life with her much older husband. Soon an unlikely relationship with her enigmatic African-American maid opens Lily’s world to new possibilities – but at a big price. Adjmi’s daring new work shifts from caustic satire to violent drama as it mines the social and economic implications of the American Dream and the universal desire to fit in.
