The Chicago Theater company, Silk Road Rising, has a new video-play with themes of particular resonance after the terrorist attacks in Paris. "Multi Meets Poly: Multiculturalism and Polyculturalism Go on a First Date” examines the role of the citizen in today’s society. It also looks at what it means to live in a country with a mix of races, ethnicities and religions. Jamil Khoury is Silk Road Rising's founding artistic director and the playwright behind this video play. He joins us in studio.
