A Zoom reading of a semi-autobiographical political play by a Knoxville playwright.

About this Event

WALLS: A Play for Palestine is a play written by Summer Ghasan Awad. Based on the playwright’s life, WALLS tells the story of a teenager’s complex relationship with her traditional Muslim father and her struggle to reconcile her Palestinian roots with her East Tennessee upbringing. Although Diaspora Child clashes with her father over dating, prom, and clothing, she yearns to connect with her heritage on her own terms. As Diaspora Child reads history textbooks and learns Arabic, Mother Palestine appears to tell the story of her traumatic history. WALLS explores the issues of immigration and diaspora, parent-child relationships, and the often forgotten history of the Palestinian people.

This Zoom reading will feature Déa Julien as Diaspora Child, Ali Andre Ali as Baba, Inji El Gammal as Mother Palestine, and Adam Hughes as Dudebro, the Aliyot, Prom Date, and the Rapist.
