TONYC Set to Present ASHTAR Theatre's "The Gaza Monologues"

Nov. 18, 2023
On November 29th, TONYC will be presenting a reading of "The Gaza Monologues" in collaboration with ASHTAR Theatre, Friends of ASHTAR NYC, Radical Evolution, and The People's Forum.

ASHTAR Theatre has launched an urgent request to its friends and theater-makers around the world to publicly read or perform "The Gaza Monologues" — testimonies written by ASHTAR youth in 2010, highlighting the fears, hopes, and resilience of Gazans — on Wednesday, November 29th, The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Theatre of the Oppressed NYC has heard the call and will be presenting a reading that evening. Please join us on the 29th from 7-8:50pm at The People's Forum's Cinema Room (320 W 37th St, New York, NY 10018) to hear a selection of the monologues performed live in English, Arabic, and Spanish, followed by a brief discussion to identify activism resources and organizing opportunities.

This event is free to attend, but donations to ASHTAR Theatre's psycho-social relief intervention program in the West Bank are encouraged. For more information about The Gaza Monologues and ASHTAR Theatre's work, please contact [email protected].

This event is presented by Theatre of the Oppressed NYC in partnership with ASHTAR Theatre, Friends of ASHTAR Theatre NYC, Radical Evolution, The People's Forum, and the Palestinian Youth Movement.
