Have you ever had your picnic interrupted by soldiers? Well the main protagonists of Scenes From 68* Years have.

Then there are the never-ending queues and the sunbathing in the shadow of a tank.

This play aims to present an epic snapshot of life in Palestine, then and now.

From the pen of Palestinian-Irish playwright Hannah Khalil it draws on stories from the lives of her family and friends to paint an alternative picture of life in the region – one rarely glimpsed in mainstream media and told with black humour.

A cast of six actors in the UK – and one in Palestine – take the audience on a whistle-stop tour through space and time, from 1948 to the present day.

Forget suicide belts and crying mothers – this is “the real human story revealed” – the dreams, comedy, sadness and frustrations of daily life in the shadow of the separation wall.

Various times, Wednesday, April 6-30, from £12, Arcola
