Nineveh, a new play by Julia Pascal and directed by Ailin Conant opens at Riverside Studios, April 16-May 11 2013
Presented by Theatre Témoin.
Once there was a boy. The war had taken his hands and arms. When he went home, his family didn’t recognise him. “You have no arms”, they said, “you are not our son”. They threw him into the river, where a giant fish swallowed him…
Three former soldiers are trapped in a whale. When a boy from another war zone arrives, they are forced to deal with their own pasts.
Inspired by true stories told by child soldiers and ex-combatants from across the world; collected by Ailin Conant during a year of creative work in Kashmir, Israel, Lebanon, and Rwanda.
