And Here I Am

And Here I Am

Arcola Theatre · 03 JUL - 08 JUL

Based on Ahmed Tobasi’s extraordinary coming of age story, And Here I Am is an epic voyage of identity and self-discovery in the first and second Palestinian intifadas (uprisings).

Overview

Combining fact and fantasy, this is an extraordinary tale of occupation and resistance, fear and heroism. It follows Ahmed’s journey from the West Bank to political exile in Norway and back again, and his transformation from armed resistance fighter to established artist.

Award-winning writer Hassan Abdulrazzak (Love, Bombs & Apples) and the team behind the critically-acclaimed 2016 tour of Queens of Syria join forces for this unforgettable tale of one boy’s struggle for self-determination in a violent world.

Critic reviews

This powerful real-life account of life in Jenin in the West Bank is a raw and sharply comic production.
