Sanaz Toossi, playwright

The Play
When you’re stuck on a train going through the desert in the Middle East, things can get heated. Especially for three prickly siblings. Oldest sister Shadi is depressed, youngest sibling Cameron is in transition, and Ani—with a brand new nose—is caught in the middle. Questions of identity, love, gender and body hair are raised. Razors drawn.

The Playwright
Sanaz is a playwright from California. Born and raised in Orange County, she found her passion for theater at South Coast Repertory. She is a graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara and lives in New York with two actors in a one-bedroom.
