Coming Spring 2024
Developed through our Playwright Incubator series, New Arab American Theater Works is excited to present this world premiere play by Palestinian playwright, William Nour in Spring 2024.
Rosette is a young Palestinian woman, born in 1948, the year of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Her village was destroyed, and half her family are in refugee camps in Lebanon. It is now 1964. Displaced and living in Haifa with what is left of her family, she is coming of age, questioning her identity, her place in the family and society. Will she follow her sister into an arranged marriage or can she pursue her dreams in the city away from the social constraints of the small village life?
