    For a Palestinian

    Tue 13 Sept - Sat 1 Oct at 7pm
    Tickets £12 (£10)
    Bilal has always been obsessed with love stories. In this one-person show he tells you his favourite: the true story of Palestinian poet and translator Wa’el Zuaiter.

    Bilal has always been obsessed with love stories. Here he tells you his favourite: the true story of Palestinian translator Wa’el Zuaiter. Join Bilal as he ventures through the orange groves of Jaffa, Rome's piazzas, and the Duty-Free aisles of Luton Airport, piecing together this untold story, and asking what it means to be a Palestinian in the West.

    WoLab returns to Camden People’s Theatre and then visits the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, with the ‘astonishingly powerful‘ For A Palestinian. This show follows the 5-star hit RAINER, and U.K wide tour of the critically acclaimed ENG-ER-LAND. Performed by Bilal Hasna, star of upcoming Disney+ series Extraordinary, and directed by Aaron Kilercioglu. 

    Supported by P21 Gallery, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Na'amod, Bristol Palestine Museum and Cultural Centre and New Diorama Theatre. 

    Supported by Camden People's Theatre and Bristol Old Vic Theatre.
