> About Fatwa: "As authors, both Michael and Mohammed have written similar
> works, . . . Michael desires fame and hopes to earn it through a decree of
> fatwa. The plot ensues when Michael causes Mohammed to believe that a fatwa
> has been set for Michael¹s death. The two then advance into a scheme to fake
> Michael¹s death, in the hopes that as a result, the public would come to see
> the fatwa as reality, and the sales of Michael's book would soar above the
> total of eighty copies. Explosive in its irony, Fatwa is written with
> impeccable wit by Anuvab Pal. The dialogue is entertaining and engaging. .
> . . . And it is a treat to see two veteran and seasoned actors like Jamrog
> and Matz take the stage at Fringe NYC."
