Pear Theatre presents the funny, poignant, and altogether politically timely play, Veils by Tom Coash, the 2015 winner of the American Theatre Critics Association M. Elizabeth Osborn Award.  Set in the midst of the so-called 2011 “Arab Spring” upheavals that spread revolutionary fever and rioting into Cairo itself, Veils is at the heart about two young women who have counter ideas of what is and is not appropriate for Islamic women to wear – an issue still very much alive throughout the world in 2016.

Rating: 4 E

Veils continues through September 18 in repertory with The Guys at Pear Theatre, 1110 La Avenida, Mountain View.  Tickets are available at or by calling 650-254-1148.
