  1. I was in the audience for this performance yesterday evening and came away feeling deeply, deeply moved by the performance and the narrative. Anyone who is confused by the media representations of the plight of Palestinians in relation to Israel should attend this performance that was enlightening, imaginative, inspiring and beautiful. Thank you.
