Written and performed by Ramy El-Etreby, The Ride is a tale about struggling to reconcile seemingly conflicting identities: gay, Arab, and Muslim.

After being outed publicly in the LA Times, Ramy’s world is turned upside down. As his relationship with his family becomes strained, so does his faith in God. The Ride takes Ramy down a dark hole where he loses touch with the most precious parts of himself. Featuring multiple characters from Ramy’s life, including his disapproving parents, his supportive first love, and his snarky “catterpist” (that’s his cat who also serves as his therapist), The Ride offers lessons learned on the bumpy road from self loathing to self love.

The Ride first premiered at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks as part of Solofest, the largest solo theater festival on the West Coast. The Ride had its New York premiere in Fall 2018 at the Flux Factory as part of Mark For Redaction, an inter-disciplinary art show featuring LGBTQ artists from the Arab diaspora.
