Through her eyes, we get to see the world beyond the politically correct America and the war-torn Palestine. She manages to recreate important episodes from her life by acting out the interesting array of characters that cross her path: elder women from the community who’d constantly pester her to get married, casting agents who’d cast doubts on her ethnicity, a gum seller in Ramallah who tries to charge her more because of her American identity, and the love of her life, Judah.
Her ability to laugh at the complexities of her life is commendable and pulls the viewers into chaos of her life. She plays with the stark contrast between the stereotypical representation of Palestinians in the media and the actual people that she meets on her visit there. Her stories take the audience by surprise, make them chuckle, and also catch them off guard shedding a tear or two.
The show has been going on for three years now and has garnered an admirable reputation amongst theaters critics and viewers alike. The ongoing Los Angeles spell has six shows from June 9 to 25 as a part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival. All shows are held at the Theater Asylum Lab located on 6320 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles. The tickets are available to purchase online for $15.
