Set in the present day, Grey Rock tells the story of a man in a small West Bank village who watched the Americans land on the moon in 1969. Instantly, the romantic, mysterious moon is transformed into a grey rock where the Americans are planting their flag. The older man reflects on 1969, and wonders, shouldn’t Palestine, land of prophets, also have representation on the moon? He decides to build a space rocket with the help of his bemused neighbors.
Director and playwright Zuabi creates a humorous, fantastical play exploring how US culture has permeated and influenced Palestinian culture.
Performed in English.

Khalifa Natour, Ivan Kevork Azazian, Fida Zaidan, Alaa Shehada, and Motaz Malhis.

About the Artists

The Remote Theater Project brings artists who are isolated, either geographically or politically, to NYC to develop new work. Zuabi’s recent work TAHA was seen at the Kennedy Center and Edinburgh Festival. His play Oh My Sweet Land was produced by the Play Co. in fall 2017, in kitchens around the city to widespread critical acclaim.
