The World Premiere of

THROUGH THE EYE OF A NEEDLE

By Jami Brandli

Directed By Ann Hearn

A semi-finalist for the O’Neill Playwrights Conference.

The Keen family is dealing with the recent tragedy concerning their daughter, Dana, a navy corpsman in the Iraq War. Larry copes with a tumbler of scotch, or five, Barbara sets an extra plate setting and Samantha, their teenage daughter, secretly uses Twitter to create a protest.  Then Nasser, an Iraqi refugee, arrives at their door unannounced on Christmas Eve.   As the family fights over whether or not to keep Nasser’s “gift”, tempers fly and secrets are revealed.  Will the Keens be pulled further apart or will they find grace and redemption in this intriguing family dramedy?
