New play depicts the Baha'i faith

A new play, "The Marriage of Munirih Khanum," will premiere at 3 p.m. Saturday at Spirit Square's Duke Power Theatre, 345 N. College St. in uptown Charlotte.

The play is about love, faith, and the importance of spiritual values in a marketplace world.

The two-person performance is a collaborative work by Bill George and his daughter, Anisa George, both of Nazareth, Pa. Bill George founded Touchstone Theatre, a professional ensemble theatre in Bethlehem, Pa. Anisa George graduated from Moravian Academy in 2000 and will attend the University of Scotland in Edinburgh in October.

The father-daughter team's play depicts the ill-fated intended marriage to Abdul Baha, the son of Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha'i faith.

The play is sponsored by the Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of Charlotte. Tickets are $10 per person.

The performance is not suggested for children younger than 10. For reservations or more information on the Baha'i faith call (704) 563-2323.
