“Would you want me to convert to Islam?”
“Of course, it’s like wishing you good health.”

When Sara knocks on her brother’s door after two years, she hardly recognises the man in front of her. Thomas has grown a beard, gets up at the crack of dawn, and dates a girl in a Hijab. They attempt to rekindle their childhood friendship, but Thomas hasn’t told his sister everything yet…

Becoming Mohammed is a new play inspired by the personal experience of director Annemiek, whose brother reverted to Islam. It explores what it takes for a Western man to become a Muslim, and for his family to come to terms with his choice.
