“Your hobbies are limited to Arab Idol and cooking lentils and having sex in fields late at night.”

The year is 2024, and Reem and her husband Sayeed are here to share a ‘Serious Play about Palestine’. 

Things are tense. People are on the edge. The Third Intifada is right around the corner.

But on a contested piece of land near their village of Beit al-Qadir, this couple is about to go dogging.

Don’t worry, you’re allowed to laugh. 

“If a story about Palestine doesn’t feature a tormented examination of the Arab-Israeli conflict, is it even a story about Palestine?”

two Palestinians go dogging by Sami Ibrahim recently won the Theatre Uncut Political Playwriting Award 2019 and uses the lens of humour to explore how the everyday becomes political and the political becomes everyday in a conflict zone. The production will be directed by Omar Elerian.
