About First Down

Presented by Noor Theatre

By SEVAN

Directed by Johanna McKeon

Montana native George Berri is a national sports sensation, beloved hometown hero, and one of the NFL’s best players. But he’s about to create a perfect storm of personal, professional, and political conflict as he wrestles with the decision to reveal who he really is at the Super Bowl. He wants to tell the world he's an Arab-Muslim by praying during the national anthem. The costs of his choice may be more than he bargained for. First Down is the first in a triptych of Muslim plays examining crises and questions of identity and faith in modern America.
