Layla and Imran are both Muslim-American… and that’s pretty much where the similarities end. The two authors—one a literature professor, the other a novelist—have wildly differing opinions on everything, from faith and politics, to relationships and cultural clichés. After some fiery verbal sparring they manage to find common ground in the bedroom; but are these lovers coupling because of their mutual loathing, or in spite of it? Rehana Lew Mirza’s highly anticipated Off-Broadway debut finishes off our LOVE/HATE REP with smoldering sexual tension as it tests the limits of just how far we’re willing to go to keep the fire burning.
