I am Yusuf and This is My Brother written by Palestinian writer
and director Amir Nizar Zuabi deals with the aftermath
following the ending of the British mandate in Palestine in May
1948. It is a play of remembrance in which the playwright seeks
to recall the loss and separation experienced by his forbears.
This play is about people, just ordinary people – complicated
and beautiful – who led a life that was their own and who now
lead a life of ‘what if’ ”.
