"How do you produce a pro-peace play in a country that is at war? How do you put positive Arab characters on stage at a time when negative stereotypes abound? How do you speak about the emotional costs, and loss of life, of the current wars to a nation that wants to forget?" (Playwright, Karen Malpede)
