Born of immigrated Iraqi parents pursuing their higher education in theatre, Wasim No’mani spent his developing and formative years meandering through sets, stages and theaters throughout the US with big immigrant dreams of seriously playing pretend for a profession. He currently resides in Los Angeles where he is unemployed as a working actor. Eager and exhilarated to make his third appearance on the ACT stage under the tutelage of John Langs’ direction (Oslo; People of the Book) after a two-year absence due to… well, you already know. He’s treaded the boards of various theaters along the Western coast in productions such as: Water by the Spoonful and Happiest Song Plays Last (Profile Theatre, Portland); Jesus Hopped the A Train (CoHo Productions, Portland); Last Days of Judas Iscariot (The Hudson Mainstage, Los Angeles); Buffalo Soldier (El Portal, Los Angeles). You also may have seen him on the little screen; (FOX’S TOUCH; CBS’ SEAL TEAM; Paramount’s YELLOWSTONE; and the largest crowd funded show in history, THE CHOSEN).

He proudly praises Mr. El-Guindi for this play and his entire body of work.
