Suppose God and Lucifer joined forces to create a night of theatre. What would be the outcome? Comedy? Tragedy? Picture a modern day Job, a proud stone thrower named Joseph McCarthy, a devout christian woman on the brink of a spiritual meltdown, a lost Adam and Pandora, and finally, a dead man who can't see his past or face his future.
Omar just received a fellowship grant from the Idaho Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the arts as a playwright and composer.
Omar is also a proud member of the Dramatist's Guild.
