THEM: Samah Sabawi’s moving play about war displacement
A tale of survival, friendship, and the things we are willing to do to protect the ones we love. Multiple award-winning playwright Samah Sabawi pens her latest play THEM.
In creating THEM, people displaced by war were brought on as consultants to capture the authenticity behind living in conflict zones, losing one’s home, forced to leave everything and start anew. Omar, Leila, and their young child play central roles in this poignant story that tell the stories of many.
Actress, Claudia Greenstone joined Sean Hatzinikolaou to discuss the inspiration for this meaningful play and its production process.
