It’s Kabul, Afghanistan, in 2013. Taroon (Babak Tafti), a former interpreter for the U.S. military, lives in hiding from the Taliban with his sister Afiya (Marjan Neshat). The U.S. is pulling out.

Taroon restlessly awaits news from the hospital as his wife goes into labor with his first child, his brother-in-law Jawid (Omid Abtahi) works to protect him from dangers lurking outside the apartment walls. In this world premiere drama directed by Tyne Rafaeli, Sylvia Khoury examines loyalty, empty promises, and what it means to be left behind.

Selling Kabul is the recipient of the 2018 L. Arnold Weissberger New Play Award, administered by Williamstown Theatre Festival, and is produced in association with Playwrights Horizons.
