THE FREEDOM THEATRE, PALESTINE
Women from across Palestine take refuge in a holy place asking God and the citizens of the city to grant them asylum. They are running not from war, or famine or occupation but from men.
Inspired by Aeschylus play The Suppliant Women the production is a juxtaposition of the original text, as well as powerful personal stories of harassment, fights to be educated, a choice in marriage and dreams of determining their own futures.
Us Too is an urgent protest play performed by women across Palestine, demanding an equal future, today.
Created by Zoe Lafferty, Ahmed Tobasi and the cast.
