Jennifer Jajeh is Palestinian. Well, Palestinian American. Or more precisely: a single, Catholic, first generation, Palestinian American woman who chooses to return to her parents’ hometown of Ramallah at the start of the Second Intifada. Join her on American and Palestinian soil on auditions, bad dates, and across military checkpoints as she navigates the thorny terrain around Palestinian identity in this tragicomic solo show.

“Sometimes-humorous, sometimes-disturbing… her discoveries of what life in Ramallah is like for Palestinians may be revelatory for most Americans.” -Chicago Tribune

“Incredibly funny! Jajeh’s talent for storytelling with a combustive blend of humor and pathos is on full display. (Jajeh) has created a fresh, irreverent, and heartfelt take on trans-national identity politics and representations of the Middle East.” -Flavorpill San Francisco

“This play provides a fascinating look into a world we don’t often see or hear about.” -NYTHEATRE.COM
