Rag Head

The Complex
6476 Santa Monica Blvd Hollywood

On August 5, 2012 a white supremacist entered a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and murdered six people. Sundeep Morrisonís portrays six inextricably linked characters whose lives are forever changed by one desperate action. Since 9/11, there has been an alarming increase in hate crimes committed against Sikhs, Muslims and other immigrant communities. With their turbans and long beards, Sikhs are often mistaken for Muslims or Arabs, and have inadvertently become targets of anti-Muslim bias in the United States. According to the Sikh Coalition, there are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the U.S. many of whom have been subject to xenophobic harassment or violence.

"...Rag Head was created as an effort to educate audiences and help provide an antidote to the hateful intolerance so pervasive in this country today. If youíre an enlightened Angelino who celebrates the diversity of our community and is sensitive to angry counter currents that boost intolerance in its stead, you wonít be much surprised by the content of Morrisonís show and its disturbing conclusion. That said, despite the time lapse between scenes necessitated by costume changes, the humor-etched monologues are effectively and affectingly executed, with Liza Elaine Stegallís sound design and choice of music creating an apt aural backdrop for this writer/performerís pressing message."
