About the event
Author & Performer: Sufian Z. Title of the show: An Immigrant's Guide to America. Description: A renowned immigrant scholar is forced to test his own inter-cultural theories in real life when he immigrates to the United States. Can he survive in the wild among these mysterious species he studied - Americans? The awkward professor goes through painful culture shock and endless missteps before fully assimilating into American society. In this humorous solo show, award-winning author and performer Sufian Z will have audiences reevaluate what they thought they knew about Americans.
