THEY CALL IT A CIVIL WAR, BUT THERE IS NOTHING CIVIL IN THIS. NOTHING CIVIL AT ALL.
Step into the kitchen. The onions are cooking on the stove and meat is on the cutting board waiting to be chopped. Our host is preparing kubah, a traditional Syrian dish. While she cooks, she tells us the story of meeting Ashraf, a Syrian exile, and falling in love with him as he desperately tries to help those he was forced to leave behind. When he vanishes, she impulsively trails him to her homeland—one she has never known, now consumed by war. As the meal comes together and then falls apart, we learn the stories of brutality, grace, and humanity of the Syrian refugees she meets along the way.
In its only Bronx presentation, writer and director AMIR NIZAR ZUABI and PLAYCO in collaboration with ID Studio Theater will present OH MY SWEET LAND creating a theatrical experience that will be close, personal and lift what’s happening in Syria out of the news cycle and into a simple human interaction that allows us to hear and feel in a different way.
