Theater Performance: The Mint Sprout
Hossam Abu Aisha

Thursday 16 May 2024  | 7:30 PM | Archaeological Site

This monodrama is based on the real-life events of actor and playwright Hossam Abu Aisha’s imprisonment in the early 1980s, and the love letters exchanged between him and his wife during that period. The play offers a lens into the experiences of Palestinian prisoners as they strive to survive and resist inside the prisons of the Israeli occupation.

The performance will be in Arabic, and it is not suitable for children under the age of 16.
