Description 1 online resource
Summary <I>"An astonishingly powerful play with a mesmeric performance from Bilal Hasna. He is an important young Palestinian voice who deserves a wide audience."</i> <b>- Palestine Solidarity Campaign</b> <i> </i><i>But there's this feeling.</i> <i> </i> <i>And it really is impossible to translate. </i> <i> </i> <i>But if you feel it you know what it is. If you're watching this and you're Palestinian, you know what it is.</i> <i> </i>Bilal has always been obsessed with love stories. Here he tells you his favourite: the true story of Palestinian translator Wa'el Zuaiter. Join Bilal as he ventures through the orange groves of Jaffa, Rome's piazzas, and the Duty-Free aisles of Luton Airport, piecing together this untold story, and asking what it means to be a Palestinian in the West. After receiving standing ovations and glowing audience reviews when it appeared as a work in progress in 2021, WoLab returned to Camden People's Theatre and transferred to the Bristol Old Vic in Autumn 2022, with Bilal Hasna and Aaron Kilercioglu's acclaimed, <i>For A Palestinian</i>. The play was supported by P21 Gallery, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Na'amod, Bristol Palestine Museum and Cultural Centre, and New Diorama Theatre
