Three great religions, Islam - Christianity and Judaism, share the story of Abraham binding and nearly sacrificing his son. Though based on this myth, CHAHETA (The Beloved) is not the story of ‘that’ Abraham and imagines what happened after father and son come down from the mountain. The play explores the psychological scars wrought upon Abraham’s son after surviving his traumatic event.

Did Abraham bring his young son to the mountain for the purpose of human sacrifice, as his wife and son believe, or was he simply trying to toughen up his sensitive young son with a father-and-son camping trip, as he claims? Did an angel of God in the form of a brown sheep, actually intervene on the mountain as scriptures dictate? Chaheta’s anachronistic hallucination of family dysfunction walks a fascinating line between inclusivity and alienation. Ultimately, this intense allegorical drama attempts to question the sanity and sanctity of people who claim to talk with God.

Via a kind of violent abstraction that sometimes borders on the absurd, it concerns itself as a dark metaphor, and takes us to a place far more insidious than we could’ve bargained for.
