The production will run through Nov. 16.
Here's how SCR bills the play: "Zealot is set in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The British consul pours tea for the American undersecretary of state, avoiding her questions—with answers to ones she hasn’t even asked—that’s diplomacy at work. Meanwhile, in the street below, a group of women set in motion a carefully planned protest. The results are devastating enough to ignite a battle of wills and wits—now that a life hangs in the balance."
According to press notes, "Zealot is generously supported by Honorary Producers Yvonne and Damien Jordan. It also is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award. It was presented as a staged reading during SCR’s 2014 Pacific Playwrights Festival."
The design and creative team includes Ralph Funicello (scenic design), Alex Jaeger (costume design), Russell Champa (lighting design) and Cricket Myers (sound design). Tickets begin at $22.
