The Kennedy Center brings playwright Wajdi Mouawad's semi-autobiographical reflection Seuls to D.C. as part of its World Stages international theater series. The play tells the powerful story of a man who moved to a new country as a child to escape a civil war. As an adult, the man begins to realize his emigration has compromised his self-knowledge. Mouawad -- who wrote, directed and stars in the play -- was born in Lebanon in 1968, and moved from there to Paris and then Montreal by the age of nine. One of the most widely produced playwrights in Canada and France, his works have earned him numerous honors, including Canada's Governor General's Award and an appointment as an Officer of the Order of Canada. Seuls has been performed in Canada, Russia and throughout Europe and now makes its U.S. debut at the Center's Eisenhower Theater.
