Obliterated is a new drama by Palestinian writer Ahmed Masoud, to be performed by Maxine Peake on 09 August 2019 at Amnesty International UK in Hackney. It explores the complexity of a society that has lived under siege for over a decade, delving deep into humanity’s most urgent social and political challenges with darkly satirical humour.

What happens when your life turns upside down? How do you deal with a partner who has disappeared? Where do you start looking?

Amanda McHugh is a British lawyer living in Slough with her husband Naseem who goes missing as he embarks on a journey to visit his family back home in the Gaza Strip.

Having lost faith in the British Foreign Office, Amanda decides to undertake the perilous journey to Palestine and find her husband herself, a voyage that takes her through the ISIS-threatened Sinai Desert to enter Hamas-controlled Gaza through the Rafah Border Crossing with Egypt.
