A fragile community is disrupted when secrets come to light.
Putting her old life in Palestine behind her, Halla has forged a successful career in Edinburgh. But when a figure from her past shows up unexpectedly, Halla must choose between old loyalties and new stability. This first feature from Edinburgh's Theatre Workshop – a company that collaborates with community groups to address the issues that affect them – burns with relevance. Rawedged, relevant, and crafted by passionate collective effort, it's inspiring, provocative stuff.
