Palestine Monologues – Newham
In February 2013 we presented a week run of our outreach script Palestine Monologues at New Vic College, in Newham for thousands of students. Cast includes: Eleanor Barr, Anil Kumar and Fanos Xenofos. Film design by Callum Cooper and Ana Tiqua

The feedback we have had from staff and students has been phenomenal. We felt as a piece of drama it skilfully brought together the testimonies and words of real people, but still held together as an excellent piece of drama.
As for the content, we felt this was a humanised and balanced perspective that didn’t ignore any aspects and began to consider how a conflict like this might take place. Many staff and students have commented on how this has challenged their views and led to a much better understanding of both the true politics of the conflict and the human rights aspects.
