ASHTAR Theatre launched an urgent request to its friends and theatremakers around the world to publicly read or perform The Gaza Monologues—testimonies written by ASHTAR youth in 2010, highlighting the fears, hopes, and resilience of Gazans—on 29 November, The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. This event was Theatre of the Oppressed NYC's response to that request. 

Please join us to hear a selection of the monologues performed live in English, Arabic, and Spanish.

This event was free, but donations to ASHTAR Theatre's psycho-social relief intervention program in the West Bank continue to be encouraged. 

For more information about The Gaza Monologues and ASHTAR Theatre's work, please contact [email protected].

This event was presented by Theatre of the Oppressed NYC in partnership with ASHTAR Theatre, Friends of ASHTAR NYC, Radical Evolution, The People's Forum, and the Palestinian Youth Movement.
