Event Details

Staged reading of the play
How to Remain a Humanist After a Massacre in 17 Steps
TRANSLATED BY SHIR FREIBACH

The haunting 20-minute play opens with two prologues set on the morning of October 7th. It then sharply transforms into a ‘how to’ course in maintaining humanity in the aftermath of barbarism; poignantly capturing the moment when everything changed for the people of Israel, Palestine/Gaza, and way beyond.

It sets the stage for crucial conversations about the world’s most combustible conflict and enforces that essential reminder: ‘There are mothers on both sides.’ The play has been presented broadly in Europe and Israel, generating intense, widespread word-of-mouth and profoundly emotional response; with presentations currently in development across the US.

Ami Dayan directs the reading, with a cast featuring Wendy Ishii, Tamara Meneghini, and Mari Brown.

All events will include a facilitated Panel Discussion with local  journalists, educators, and political and faith leaders, and Poetry by  Palestinian Writers Taha Muhammad Ali, and Refaat Alareer, who was killed in an IDF airstrike on December 6th, days after writing his renowned  poem If I Must Die.  

Proceeds go to Medical Aid for Palestine and Bring Them Home Now!
