I though this looked fascinating at the Public and thought I would share.
URGE FOR GOING
By Mona Mansour
Directed by Hal Brooks
March 25 - April 17
Three weeks only!
Featuring Omid Abtahi, Jacqueline Antaramian, Tala Ashe, Demosthenes Chrysan, Ramsey Faragallah, and Ted Sod
Jamila, a 17-year-old Palestinian girl growing up in a Lebanese refugee camp, is desperate to escape the small and impoverished world she calls home but her greatest source of inspiration, her father, may also prove to be her biggest obstacle. Mona Mansour, a member of The Public's Emerging Writers Group making her major debut with this production, fuses global politics with the intimacy of coming of age in this searing new play.
Playwright Mona Mansour was recently profiled as a "talent to watch" in The New York Times' preview of the Spring Theater Season.
The Public Web Site will direct you to $15 tickets.
