A celebration of pluralism: The Harmony ProjectA celebration of pluralism, The Harmony Project premiered before audiences at the Ismaili Centre, London at four sold out performances on 13 and 14 April 2013. Written, directed and performed by members of the United Kingdom Jamat, the theatrical production follows the story of a group of fictional characters from completely different backgrounds, brought together to create a show.

Initially, the differences between the characters appear insurmountable and they find it very difficult to get along. This is juxtaposed with the congruity of the ensemble. All of this is interspersed with the comical escapades of the rather hapless council member responsible for the project and his long-suffering assistant. After some meaningful introspection and with a little guidance, the characters begin to work together and see their diversity as a possible advantage and even a source of creativity.
