Show Info


FOOD AND FADWA story is by Lameece Issaq and Jacob Kader. The play is directed by Shana Gold, a Co-Production with Noor Theatre.

Meet Fadwa Faranesh, an unmarried, 30-something, Palestinian woman known for her delectable cooking and deep seated sense of duty to her siblings and aging father. Despite the constraints of a curfew imposed on the community of East Bethlehem in 2002, our kitchen maven insists on continuing the preparations for the wedding of her younger sister. Politics blend with family tensions to create a sometimes humorous and sometimes heartbreaking meal. Story by Lameece Issaq and Jacob kader , this new play melds the fight a Palestinian family wages to hold onto its traditional culture with its need to celebrate love, joy and hope. NYTW teams up with company-in-residence Noor Theatre to present FOOD AND FADWA.
