Scenes From 68* Years played at The Arcola from 6th – 30th April 2016
The cast of six, is pictured below.
A picnic interrupted by soldiers. Sunbathing in the shadow of a tank. Life can be unpredictable under occupation.
Told with typical Palestinian black humour, Scenes from 68* Years is an epic snapshot of life in Palestine, then and now. Palestinian-Irish playwright Hannah Khalil draws on stories from family and friends’ lives to paint this alternative picture – one rarely glimpsed in mainstream media.
Forget suicide belts and stone-hurling youths – here the real human story is revealed: the dreams, comedy, sadness and frustrations of daily life in the shadow of the ‘separation wall’.
