The Palestinian In The Basement Is On Fire

Written by Sammi Ibrahim

Directed by Chris Yarnell 

Performed by: Lara Sawalha and Edward De Gaetano

Performed at The Bunker Theatre

"The Palestinian in the Basement is on Fire, which tells the tale of Jawad Hadin, a Palestinian who murdered an Israeli girl, culminating in his death by being burnt alive by the Israeli forces. The piece is challenging, though the set up is simple, and the play’s dark nature is unsettling"
