Synopsis

There are people and more people. There is you and there is us too… There’s an apple and some onions… A bag of Onions and some Pomegranates… some pomegranate Juice.
There’s Quais and there’s Abir… and their fathers too…
There’s Rami and there’s Patrick… and their parents too…
There is Love, and all the issues around it; religion, race and sexuality…
We have everything here and we are always mixing onions with pomegranates.

We are Anis, Patricia, Rabih, Rayyan, Salah, Aziz, Ali, Omar, Louai, Maria, Mohamad J., Mohamad H. and Moussa. We are a group of young people brought together by our love for theatre and our belief in the necessity of raising questions about issues that we face and see people around us facing every day. We want to raise these questions on stage without limits or hesitations. We have been working together once a week for 6 months because we want to evolve as actors and writers and directors in the world of theatre and this is our first step on the road that we wish to take.

Devised and Performed by: Anis Nassereddine, Patricia Ama Gallego, Rabih Tarabai, Rayan Safa, Salah Abrouch, Aziz Ghadar, Ali Mohamad Younes, Omar Ghadar, Louay al Achkar, Maria al Achkar, Mohamad al Hussein, Mohamad Amir, Moussa Habib
