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.
