As the second offering of its 2012 season, the Overtime Theater in San Antonio presents a new drama, Sleepers Wake. Set in the shadow of 9/11, the play focuses on the question: What if a terrorist changed his mind?
Samir (Sam) Al-Hamza is a former member of the Mujaheddin who has come to the USA to conduct terrorist attacks in the San Antonio area. Living undercover as a restauranteur in Hondo, he develops relationships with the locals that challenge his loyalties. When his past comes calling, he is forced to decide once and for all what it means to serve God.
