Description

Hajja Souad sells shrouds for burying the dead in Gaza. They're always in demand. This compelling, moving black comedy inspired by a real-life character takes us on the 70 year journey of her life, weaving a harrowing story of courage, love, escape and disappointment with comic fantasy and true stories to create a vivid portrait of life in Palestine before the recent heartbreaking events. Written and directed by Ahmed Masoud. Performed by Julia Tarnoky. Audience comments: 'One of the most remarkable performances I have seen in theatre'. 'Fantastic piece of theatre - an urgent, sometimes shocking narrative'.
