We meet Kirk Dunn as he knits in front of three huge projection screens and tells the story of his life as an actor, writer, knitter, and preacher’s kid. Prompted by the events of 9/11, he knit three tapestries, designed as stained-glass windows, exploring the commonalities and conflicts of the Abrahamic faiths, which took him fifteen years to complete.

In a show that’s all about knitting and not about knitting at all, he looks at the rise of Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and fear of the other.
