What if bombs & gunfire was the daily soundtrack to your life? Welcome, to Holy Land…a raw and evocative tale of two families in a war ravaged city, trying to find humor when all is lost.
Holy Land has been presented to critical acclaim in Paris, Vienna, Prague, London, Milan, Jerusalem, Rio de Janeiro, Stockholm and Hamburg. 3rd Kulture Kids is bringing it to you here for its U.S. premiere with a fully multicultural team! Directed by Tracy Cameron Francis featuring Obie Award-winner Jojo Gonzalez, Sean Carvajal, Ana Grosse, Gil Perez-Abraham and Pia Haddad. Can we find humor & poetry in extreme situations? Mohamed Kacimi’s compelling and entertaining Holy Land answers this question as five contemporary characters face the devastation of war. A city under siege…the landscape is dusty, devastated and Carmen has disappeared at a checkpoint. Her daughter, Imen, must face a soldier’s house search alone. in the house next door, Alia, a midwife, prepares her coffee as if nothing else matters while Yad, her husband, gets away from it all by smoking and drinking. The only hope seems to reside in Jesus: the cat. This dark and humorous story follows two families hanging on to the banality of day-to-day life, at times to the point of insanity, as a way to transcend the atrocities of war.
