I am Yusuf and This Is My Brother

Palestinian theatre company ShiberHur and the Young Vic come together to produce a compelling new play by Amir Nizar Zuabi. With peace negotiations

in the Middle East deadlocked, this powerful story arrives at the Young Vic direct from touring Palestinian towns, villages and refugee camps in Israel and the West Bank “January 1948. The British Mandate is ending. The United Nations vote on who will control what part of Palestine. Ali has a burning passion for Nada but he is in despair. Her father won’t let them marry because his brother Yusuf is ‘odd’ with his own eccentric, child-like point of view. Rufus, a soldier on the occupying British forces, longs for the cold fogs of Sheffield. War begins. The villagers mourn the loss of the land as unimaginable change takes place around them. A poetic exploration of loyalty and love from the frontline.”

Venue: Young Vic Theatre, 66 The Cut, London, SE1 8LZ
