    A play about the inalienable right to dream.

    Grey Rock tells the story of a young Palestinian so enamored with the 1969 American moon landing that he muses, "shouldn't Palestine, the land of prophets, also have a presence on the moon?" Without money or technology, but with the help of his bemused West Bank neighbors, he sets out to build a space shuttle. Knowing full well that he can't succeed with this impossible, but necessary, task, the young man is visited by American heroes who guide him on his mission. Director and playwright Amir Nizar Zuabi creates a humorous, fantastical play exploring how US culture has permeated and influenced Palestinian culture. The 5 member cast of actors from across Palestine perform Grey Rock in English.

    "'Making theater shows in Palestine' — with a limited infrastructure and lack of state funding — 'sometimes feels like building rockets,' [Amir Nizar Zuabi, playwright] said. 'But when they take off, it’s glorious.'"
    – The New York Times
