MAHMOUD is a one-woman show about an aging Iranian engineer-cum-taxi driver, a fabulously gay Spaniard, and a preteen Iranian-Canadian girl, all trying to get by the day-to-day grind in the city that they call home: Toronto. Their stories intertwine, and through their connections with the audience, themselves, and each other, they explore the themes of immigration, homophobia, home, and culture.
"Dazzlingly good! A tour-de-force performance." - Woody Harrelson
