’Return to Palestine’ by The Freedom Theatre performed in France, Sweden and Luxembourg!

28.10.18 - 07:33 (14 hours ago)

News and updates from The Freedom Theatre, a theatre and cultural centre in Jenin refugee camp, occupied Palestine.
Return to Palestine’ tours once more!

In a comic and tragic way, Return to Palestine tells the story of American born Palestinian Jad who returns to his homeland. Here, he discovers Palestine is different from what is told on the news. The physical performance takes place at just a small part of the stage, which symbolises the restricted space of the Palestinian people. The play is based on true stories of life in Palestine, gathered through playback theatre during The Freedom Theatre’s Freedom Bus ride. It was originally produced in 2016, directed by Micaela Miranda.

Return to Palestine will embark on a string of performances in Sweden, France and Luxembourg which starts next week along with post show discussions and Q&A’s with the cast and crew. The team will touch down in Stockholm this coming Sunday before the first performance on Tuesday 30th October in Malmo.
