7 Jewish Children, 7 Palestinian Children, 1 American Activist
Subtitled “a play for Gaza” this is British playwright Caryl Churchill’s response to the situation in Gaza in January of 2009.
Structured as the text of seven statements parents might say to their children either in response to the events or attempting to explain them,
Performance Theatre Company presents an adaption of a number of theatrical works dealing with the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
Featuring works from Caryl Churchill, Deborah Margolin & Alan Rickman and verbatim sections from a number of key people involved in
the conflict, the play aims to present a balanced political examination from a humanitarian viewpoint. The Performance Theatre Company recently
produced Martin Crimp’s Attempts On Her Life in Granary to great critical acclaim. A Play for Gaza is an uber-theatrical multi-media presentation
which will divide audiences.
