Hannah Khalil’s play is set in Jerusalem and inspired by a true story. This black comedy tells the story of a family of Palestinians who are forced, by court ruling, to share their home with a group of Israeli settlers. Speaking directly to the situation today, this timely production balances humour, storytelling and metaphor, to give audiences a fresh perspective on the Middle East. Multi award-winning actress Maxine Peake directs.

The cast features Sarah Agha (King John, A Museum in Baghdad – RSC), Murat Erkek (Here – Curious Monkey, The Lehman Trilogy – National Theatre), Rendah Beshoori (A Museum In Baghdad – RSC, The Kitchen – National Theatre) and Anna Savva (Jude – Hampstead Theatre, The Durrells). Music will be composed by Donna McKevitt, and Steven Kunis assistant directs. The production team includes Matthew Dunster as Executive Producer, David Adkin and Damien Tracey as producers and Simon Marriott as associate producer.

All proceeds will go to Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP).
