Synopsis

Jihad Jones and the Kalashnikov Babes 
(A Play in English)
By Yussef El Guindi

Ashraf is an actor who has just received rave reviews for his performance of Hamlet at a struggling theatre in London. He’s earning peanuts and he’s having trouble paying his bills. He needs his big break. And that is just what his smarmy agent is offering, a starring role in a Hollywood blockbuster. Big money, working for his favourite director, and playing opposite his favourite Tinsel town starlet. All Ashraf has to do is play the most stereotypically evil, fanatical Islamic terrorist ever to grace the silver screen. JIHAD JONES follows Asharf as he battles the infamous slippery slope, the stereotyping, while balancing his personal ethics and cultural pride against his professional ambition.
