Event Description

(Read about how massmouth represented at last month's SubText here.)

SubText: Your stories, real or imagined

Three dream plays inspired by true events. An Israeli soldier meets a mysterious Palestinian woman in the Rafah Zoo. A Palestinian father reveals to a young Israeli their shared history. A bookish Iraqi bird collector tells of his conscription into Saddam's army. Through magic realism and surprising humor, The Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East reaches out like prophecy, challenging us to envision peace during the holiday season.

SubText theme: “Up Close and Personal/Political”

When has a personal encounter illuminated or changed your understanding of politics? When have politics affected the way you viewed a personal matter?
NOV 20th at Central Square Theater, following the 8pm performance
