Help bring Souls to the 2017 Edmonton Fringe Festival stage

A local group is bringing a Palestinian story to the stage at the 2017 Edmonton Fringe Festival, and you can help make it a reality by making a donation on their crowdfunding page.

Souls is a play about conflict, justice, and redemption. It tells the story of Hannah, a Canadian lawyer who moves to Israel with her husband, and into the home of a displaced Palestinian family. Hannah’s conscience is shaken when she meets the Soul of the previous resident – a woman killed by a settler’s bullet.

Written and directed by Aksam Alyousef, a Syrian playwrite, this play explores the human impact of the ongoing conflict. The play was inspired by the book Smuggled Stories from the Holy Lands by Edmontonian Carmen Taha Jarrah.

Please consider making a donation to the production, and like the Facebook page for updates and showtimes.
