SEVEN JEWISH CHILDREN A Play for Gaza
Playwright Caryl Churchill, a Patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, wrote this 10-minute play in response to the 2008-2009 Israeli military strike on Gaza. It was first produced at The Royal Court Theatre in 2009, and since then she has allowed anyone to produce it “so gratis”, on the condition that there is a collection at the end for the people of Gaza.
The play is divided into 7 scenes spanning over approximately 70 years. In each scene, Jewish adults discuss what should or should not be told to their children, about events in recent Jewish history during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
