Palestinian poet and playwright Dalia Taha shows us a new way of seeing how war fractures childhood in Fireworks (Al’ab Nariya).
In a Palestinian town, 11-year-old Lubna and 12-year-old Khalil are playing on the empty stairwell in their apartment block. As the siege intensifies outside, fear for their safety becomes as crippling as the conflict itself.
Part of International Playwrights: A Genesis Foundation Project, Fireworks (Al’ab Nariya) is directed by the Royal Court’s International Associate Richard Twyman, whose credits include The Djinns Of Eidgah at the venue, Henry IV Pt II for the multi Olivier Award-winning RSC Histories Cycle and Ditch at the Old Vic.
This production is suitable for those aged 14 and older.
