Riverside Theatres presents a Monkey Baa Theatre Company production
Where the Streets had a Name
Written by Eva Di Cesare
Based on the book by Randa Abdel-Fattah
This is a powerful story of one girl’s response to the confinements of curfew in an occupied city and how to rise above with humour and love.
Hayaat is on a mission. With the help of her best friend Samy, she will even skip school to achieve it. She is determined to retrieve a handful of soil from her Grandmother’s farm to make her beloved Sitti (Arabic for Grandmother) well again, but standing between Hayaat and her goal is the impenetrable wall that encloses the West Bank.
With strong performances and a stunning musical score, director Eva Di Cesare has adapted local writer Randa Abdel-Fattah’s book into a loving, gripping and enlightening production with emotional reach far beyond its Palestinian borders.
Please Note: This production includes content some patrons may find distressing including references to warfare.
