ORANGES AND STONES

Co-created by ASHTAR Theatre and Mojisola Adebayo

Tamasha and Shubbak present 

ORANGES AND STONES is a symbolic play, in which we find a woman living alone in her home. She is happy, tending to her orange orchards, until one day, a man walks in, carrying a suitcase, looking dishevelled. She has no idea who he is. She offers him some water. He waves a piece of paper and starts to unpack and move in.  

ORANGES AND STONES is a play without words, told solely through physical action and original music that conveys a moving image of occupation and settlement in Palestine spanning over 75 years.  

Now more needed than ever, ORANGES AND STONES is conceived and directed by Mojisola Adebayo, co-created with ASHTAR Theatre (Ramallah-Palestine). Last performed in the UK in 2013, it has been performed all over the world in countries including, Brazil, France, Germany, Jordan, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the USA.
