The Beloved is a haunting and heartbreaking twist on the story of Abraham and Issac, reminding us that this historic tale of sacrifice began with just one family.

When Abraham returns home from a journey with his son, his wife is troubled by the boy’s state of mind. What took place on the mountain that day is the beginning of a lifetime of suffering for his son and the dawn of a new age for millions.

Under the direction of Amir Nizar Zuabi, trailblazing Palestinian theatre company ShiberHur return to London following their acclaimed productions I Am Yusuf and This is My Brother and In the Penal Colony. Nizar is currently directing the Comedy of Errors at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
