A Land Without People at the Courtyard Theatre
Palindrome Productions will present a new play by Brian Rotman A Land Without People at the Courtyard Theatre in Shoreditch, east London, from 9 July to 1 August 2015.
The new drama is a staging of the historical events that led up to the declaration of the State of Israel in May of 1948 and comes as the world marks seventy years since the end of World War Two and the liberation of the Nazi death camps.
A Land Without People charts London’s political wrangling in the lead-up to the United Nations proposal to partition Palestine into Jewish and Arab territories. Through research of contemporary documents, it tells the story behind the overthrow of British rule in Palestine at the hands of Zionist terrorists and the violent clearing of its Arab inhabitants that was to follow.
The cast for the production includes Jules Brown, Roy Khalil, Tracey-Anne Liles, Sifiso Mazibuko, and Elena Voce.
The production is directed by Lesley Ferris with design by Brad Steinmetz, costume design by Emily Stuart, sound designer by Katie Whitlock and lighting design by Alex Kyle-DiPietropaolo.
