CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

Staged Reading of Return to Haifa
By Ghassan Kanafani
adapted for the stage by Naomi Wallace & Ismail Khalidi

In 1948, Palestinian couple Said and Safiyya flee their home during the Nakba. In the aftermath of the 1967 Six Day War, the boarders are opened for the first time in twenty years, and the couple dare to return back to their home in Haifa. They are prepared – of course – to find someone else living where they once did. Yet nothing can prepare Said and Safyya for the encounter they both desire and dread.

Produced as part of Right to a Narrative: Chicago 2020

Directed by Maren Rosenberg, Co-Artistic Director of Uprising Theater
