WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

ReOrient, the annual festival of short plays about the Middle East is back for another thought-provoking and transformative season. The Monologist Suffers for Her Monologue by Egyptian-born playwright Yussef El Guindi, directed by Arlene Hood A Palestinian-American explores her identity in this poignant and comedic monologue. In the dialogue of nations, do you ever get the feeling that Palestine is just a whiny monologue? Pistachio Stories by Lebanese-American playwright Laura Shamas, directed by Mark Ruthier This funny and touching play boils down the issues of government surveillance, censorship and freedom of speech to one simple question: What would you do if you received an unexpected bag of red pistachios from Syria? Between This Breath and You by Naomi Wallace, MacArthur "Genius" Fellow, directed by Amy Mueller A Palestinian man refuses to leave a clinic unless he speaks to the Israeli nurse in charge. She soon recognizes a hidden connection between them--a connection much stronger than their cultural divide could ever be. 22 Minutes Remaining by Oakland playwright Ignacio Zulueta, directed by Evren Odcikin An Israeli soldier is doing his job: warning the residents of a village in Southern Lebanon to vacate before an imminent attack. With only 22 minutes remaining before the next bomb hits, one of the calls he makes is about to alter his world completely. I Sell Souls by Iranian poet Simin Behbehani, directed by Golden Thread Artistic Director Torange Yeghiazarian.
