Dhana and the Rosebuds, follows a young Syrian woman pursuing her science career in NYC as she tries to forget her complicated past. But when she thinks she recognizes her estranged grandmother on a TV news report highlighting Syrian refugees crossing the Macedonia/Serbia border, she decides to go find her. Her international journey results in a spiritual rediscovery of her roots, her identity, and the reason why she left it all behind.

About Ally Theatre Company

Ally Theatre Company produces theatre designed to engage audiences through acknowledging and confronting systemic oppression in America. 

We aim to join the vital conversations -- sparked by generations of thinkers, writers, performers, and activists who paved the way before us -- conversations that continue each and every day -- by: 

-Placing underrepresented populations at the front and center of our narratives and our organization; 
-Forming alliances with individuals and organizations who share a similar mission;  
-Producing new theatrical works making their world, national, or local premieres; and
-Tackling existing theatrical works that forward the conversation. 

In doing so, we hope to play a small part in creating the space and opportunity needed to form new traditions and conversations, while steadily inching toward the eradication of systemic violence, prejudice, and racism in our society.
