The Tale of the Allergist's Wife - meet cast member Omar Rocha

Tell us about your character Mohammed from The Tale of the Allergist's Wife.
Mohammed came to the United States from Iraq many years ago.  His father wanted to partake in the American dream and wanted his family to benefit from it as well.  Although Mohammed's father was somewhat distant, he always wanted the best for Mohammed and his siblings.  Eventually, Mohammed found his calling as a doorman.  His father is quite proud of him.

What were some challenges for you while working on this show?
My major difficulty was trying to get some kind of quasi accent down for Mr. Mohammed.

What do you hope the audience will take away from The Tale of the Allergist's Wife?
I believe that one truth an audience member could glean would be "every adversity is an opportunity for growth."  What some intend as harm can turn into a wonderful blessing.
