In Israel, she’s Palestinian. In the Arab world, she's Israeli. In America, she's an “Other.” From the extraordinary lead actress and director of Arena Stage’s 2020 production of A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS comes an electric one-woman show about a young woman's journey to retrieve and imagine a new sense of home. On the way she learns: Why would you need to complete military service just to wait tables? Can you pass as an Israeli if you delete your Arab accent? Through a panoply of vivid characters – from a five-year-old who just wants to join the neighborhood Purim party, to an Egyptian casting director who can't forget where she comes from, to her dying mother who longs for her daughter to find a place in the world – Hend shares a deeply personal, true story about a search for the place that many of us take for granted: Home.
