Tales of a City by the Sea 
"A perceptive story that magnificently captures the drama of star-crossed lovers in the besieged Gaza Strip." - Steven Davenport, INDaily, 14 June 2016

"A brave work...not only reflecting but also possibly affecting our view of this seemingly intractable conflict." - Peter Burdon, The Advertiser, 12 June 2016

"A poetic story of resilience in the face of brutal adversity." - Julia Wakefield, Weekend Notes, 13 June 2016

"[A] poetically beautiful, discerning and honest in its examination of life in Gaza...The profound grace of this production lies in the honest and forthright manner of Sabawi’s writing." - David O'Brien, The Barefoot Review, 10 June 2016

You can send your email now on your phone, tablet or computer anywhere and it takes less than a minute!
