I Am Yusuf And This Is My Brother

by Amir Nizar Zuabi
Direction Amir Nizar Zuabi

January 1948. Palestine. The British Mandate is ending. The UN is voting on who will control what part of the land...

Ali is in love with Nada - but he is in despair. Her father won't let them marry because his brother Yusuf is 'odd' with his own eccentric, child-like point of view.

War begins. As the villagers are scattered and become refugees, the secret that's kept Ali and Nada apart is revealed.

A powerful, poetic exploration of different forms of love from the director of Alive from Palestine - 'an astonishing testament to the power of theatre.'  ★★★★★ The Guardian
