"If you are afraid, go – my family and I are staying"

A family with deeply buried secrets is visited by a long-lost cousin. He brings with him a warning: a powerful, unseen force is heading towards their home. Is this the only reason he has come? Can they trust him? They have very little time to decide.

Hannah Khalil’s powerful and far-reaching play is inspired by the testimonies of Palestinians who endured the 1948 war.

How far would you go to protect your family?

Reviews

'"A play whose subject matter is heartbreakingly apt for these fraught times... a little piece of narrative magic" – Jane Coyle, Culture Northern Ireland

Read a TimeOut theatre review
I don't think Hannah Khalil will get the bogus antisemitism allegations that Caryl Churchill got over her play, Seven Jewish Children, a play for Gaza. When "critics" see the name Hannah Khalil, they'll probably shrug and say "she would say that, wouldn't she?"
