About the Show:
‘She’s speaking to me. The olive tree.
Something tells me we’re not in Dublin anymore.’
A rainy day in Dublin. A jaded supermarket employee rips a boycott sticker off a bottle of olive oil. And the Palestinian olive tree of history comes to life before her…
A magic realist journey into the stories and struggles of Palestine, past, present and future.
A new play written and performed by Katie O’Kelly (Stage UK nominee for Best Solo Performer, Edinburgh Fringe 2012).
Directed by Davey Kelleher.
Produced by The New Theatre, with support from the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Afri – Action from Ireland.
