The Shroud Maker

The Shroud Maker: What's the best business one can establish in Gaza? Loosely based on a real life character still residing in Gaza, this play is a dark new satire written and directed by Ahmed Masoud that tells Hajja Souad's story. She's survived decades of wars, deportation and oppression through making and selling shrouds for the dead, profiting from the continuous Israeli attacks. The 51-day Israeli war on Gaza in summer 2014 proves highly lucrative for Hajja, until her past returns to haunt her and forcing her to make a momentous decision. Her deliberations take the audience on a lifetime's journey, telling a harrowing story of courage, love, escape and disappointment. Taking place on 11 November, 2015 at Amnesty International UK, 17-25 New Yard Inn, London EC2A 3EA.
