Muhammad of Yorkville

When a Yorkville art gallery decides to exhibit a painting of the Prophet Muhammad, it sparks a string of controversies ranging from the thought-provoking to the absurd.

Religion, politics, ideology and sexuality clash as the gallery owner, her assistant, a Muslim protestor, a pushy reporter, a wealthy patron, an angsty teen and the artist himself all say what they think and hear what they want.

This play was presented in conjunction with a group art show called HOLY FUSS specially curated by the company.

Press

“Highly recommended… Playwright Johnnie Walker is poking satirical fun at just about everything, especially artistic integrity and pretension, teenage rebellion and the great East-West divide.” – The Toronto Star

“Very clever… The script pushes a lot of button and contains many bon mots.” – NOW Magazine
