"Crackling drama, fast-paced, provocative"

Part of the Sarasota Festival of New Plays, Sarah Bierstock’s “Honor Killing” is a crackling drama following New York Times reporter Allisyn Davis’s efforts to unearth the details about the honor killing of a young Pakistani woman. A journalistic adventure, “Honor Killing” is on FST’s Gompertz Theatre stage — FST’s largest venue — through May 25. The fast-paced, provocative play focuses on Allisyn, who is denied admittance into Pakistan, causing an old flame and colleague, Ben, to travel to Pakistan in her stead, while keeping her in the loop and name in the byline. As the story begins to crystallize in front of her, Allisyn is forced to confront her own demons and judgments, inspiring questions about forgiveness, self-worth and justice.
