Sabra Falling says
Presented by Pangea World Theater and MIZNA

This event is FREE and donations are welcome.

Ismail Khalidi will discuss the challenges of writing about Palestine and about his process for writing "Sabra Falling," a play-in-progress commissioned by Pangea World Theater. He will also read from the play and from his other works.

Ismail Khalidi’s parents lived through the brunt of the civil war in Beirut in the 1970s and early '80s and gave birth to three children amidst the unspeakable bloodshed of that conflict and the Israeli invasion of 1982. Khalidi and his family fled to the United States in 1983, never to return. His play, Sabra Falling, is an ode to his parents and to the politics, the humor, the tragedy and the importance of that historical moment.

Khalidi will spend two weeks in spring 2015 as Artist in residence at Pangea while he workshops and writes the play.
