In collaboration with Outside the Frame Arts, HOME presents a reading of acclaimed Palestinian writer Ahmed Masoud’s satirical play, The Shroud Maker which, like Rose, tells a woman’s story of survival through modern history.
Hajja Souad, an 80-year old Palestinian woman living on the besieged Gaza Strip, knows how to make business. She has survived decades of wars and oppression through making shrouds for the dead.
A compelling black comedy, The Shroud Maker delves deep into the intimate life of ordinary Palestinians to weave a highly distinctive path through Palestine’s turbulent past and present.
Read by Kathryn Hunter.
Directed by Richard Beecham.
Event: This playreading will be accompanied by a Q&A with writer Ahmed Masoud.
