After premiering in Los Angeles this past spring to a sold out run, Rag Head returns to the stage. The show explores Sikhs and xenophobia in a post 9/11 America. Inspired by actual events, Sundeep Morrison's one woman show, RAG HEAD, addresses hate, hope and American identity. The four week run begins September 20th - October 14th at The Complex Hollywood - 6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038. On August 5, 2012 a white supremacist entered a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and murdered six people. Sundeep Morrison's portrays six inextricably linked characters whose lives are forever changed by one desperate action. Since 9/11, there has been an alarming increase in hate crimes committed against Sikhs, Muslims and other immigrant communities. With their turbans and long beards, Sikhs are often mistaken and have become targets in the United States. According to the Sikh Coalition, there are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the U.S. many of whom have been subject to xenophobic harassment or violence.
