Come and witness this free staged reading which is a part of New Threads 2016 Staged Reading Series. This year’s series introduces four vital new voices to the Bay Area. Laugh, cry, and think alongside these beautiful stories from and about the Middle East.
Free, but an RSVP is requested.
Each play is teeming with unexpected humor, surprising characters, and important questions about the world we live in today. On August 1, it’ll be an epic snapshot of life under occupation in Palestine, then and now.
A picnic interrupted by soldiers. Never-ending lines. Sunbathing in the shadow of a tank. Scenes From 68 Years gathers a cast of professional actors and community members to weave together a rich narrative of life in Palestine.
Palestinian-Irish playwright Hannah Khalil draws from stories of family and friends to reveal the real human story: the dreams, comedy, sadness, and frustrations of daily life in the shadow of the ‘separation wall.’
The reading will be followed by a talkback with director Evren Odcikin and cast.
