Seven Jewish Children - A Play for Gaza by Caryl Churchill in response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

A short 10 minute play, Seven Jewish Children - A Play for Gaza, written by Caryl Churchill in response to the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and examining the history of Israel, will be at the Royal Court Downstairs 6 to 21 Feb 2009 at 9pm

It is directed by Dominic Cooke, Artistic Director of the Royal Court. The play is performed for free, but a collection will be taken afterwards for the charity Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP): Emergency Appeal for the People of Gaza.

The script will be available to download for free from 11 February from the websites of the Royal Court Theatre.

Caryl Churchill said she “wrote this as a small response to what has happened in Gaza in the last few weeks.”

Dominic Cooke said: “I have long been interested in the genesis of the conflict in the Middle East, so it was very exciting to receive Caryl’s powerful and humane play on the subject. This short, urgent piece has been written in response to recent events and its resonance goes way beyond the present in its understanding of the roots of the tragedy that’s now unfolding in Gaza.”
