Scenes from 68* Years archiveA picnic interrupted by soldiers. Sunbathing in the shadow of a tank. Life can be unpredictable under occupation. Told with typical Palestinian black humour, Scenes from 68* Years is an epic snapshot of life in Palestine, then and now. Palestinian-Irish playwright Hannah Khalil draws on stories from family and friends' lives to paint this alternative picture - one rarely glimpsed in mainstream media. A cast of six actors in the UK - and one Skyping in daily from Palestine - will take you on a whistle-stop tour through space and time, from 1948 to the present day. Forget suicide belts and stone-hurling youths - here the real human story is revealed: the dreams, comedy, sadness and frustrations of daily life in the shadow of the 'separation wall'.
