    American Queen

    This book delineates the true story of an American girl, Ora Ray Baker, who fell in love with an Indian mystic by the name of Hazrat Inayat Khan. They were married in London and settled in Paris. Their firstborn daughter Noor-un-Nissa, during WW11 became a British spy in Paris. She was captured by Gestapo and later killed in Concentration Camp in Germany. Their eldest son Vilayat Khan served in Royal British Navy, docked on the beaches of Normandy to deliver men, weapons and equipment to allied forces. He survived WW11 and now his son Pir Zia carries the Sufi legacy of his grandparents Ora Ray Baker and Hazrat Inayat Khan in Richmond Virginia, USA. Ora Ray Baker’s memories are still alive in Fazal Manzil in Suresnes, a suburb of Paris where she lived and died, her home, now a Sufi retreat. It also hosts memories of her husband and their children, especially of Noor-un-Nissa who was posthumously awarded highest medals, French Croix de Guerre presented by General Charles de Gaulle and British George Cross by King of England George V1. She is also enshrined in a movie, Spy Princess.

    We are happy to inform that the world premiere of a theater play “An Albanian, A Serb and the Soldiers” was really successful event. We have Eight other performances on the dates below:

     July 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 at 8 PM.

    Venue: Producers Club Theaters, 358 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036 (between 8th and 9th Avenue). The venue has a bar/lounge.

    “An Albanian, A Serb and the Soldiers” written by Ibadete Abazi - IBI, is a full-length (60-minute) drama, with six characters. It explores deep conflict, and a dynamic story based in reality about those opposing the wars in former Yugoslavia and the political games of swapping territories … and more.

    The year is 1999, the time, the last night of the NATO bombing campaign of the Serbian Army in Kosovo. In a cellar in downtown Pristina, two hungry and frightened men, journalists from opposing sides, await their fates. As NATO fighter planes scream overhead and drop bombs, two opposing fighting forces in the darkened city struggle to win their objectives – independence for the breakaway province of Kosovo, or maintaining the dominance of the old Yugoslav Serbian political order. An Albanian journalist and a Serbian journalist, hiding from the fighting, must either decide to coexist peacefully together, or their fate will be to die together. Soldiers do their job.

    Honey and Blood Theater is a name which evokes dual and competing images of Balkan Europe, a region historically filled with both beauty - the honey, and violence - the blood.

    Produced and directed by Vinny Abazi.

    Cast features Vinny Abazi, Albanian-born American actor, director, and producer; Croatian actor Ivica Marc, and introducing to the U.S. stage three new talented performers, Serbian-born actor Ivan Kirincic, Albanian-born Julian Gjaci, and Montenegro- born American actor Izzy Durakovic. The actors are from the five countries which are part of this ongoing territorial drama: Croatia, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, and Kosovo. The play is translated by Alexandra Channer along with the consultations of Greg Kay and Janet Wasserman.
