I Heart Hamas: And Other Things I’m Afraid to Tell You
Actress and writer Jennifer Jajeh, with award winning director W. Kamau Bell, presents I Heart Hamas, a tragicomic solo theater show. Sick and tired of the unsolicited discussions, debate and disagreements about her identity and her opinions about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Jennifer tries to figure it out for herself. Join her on American and Palestinian soil on auditions, bad dates, and across military checkpoints as she navigates the thorny terrain around Palestinian identity.
ON THE RADIO:
“Jennifer Jajeh has an interesting story to tell. Sometimes-humorous, sometimes-disturbing… her discoveries of what life in Ramallah is like for Palestinians may be revelatory for most Americans.”
“Incredibly funny! Jajeh’s talent for storytelling with a combustive blend of humor and pathos is on full display… (Jajeh) has created a fresh, irreverent, and heartfelt take on trans-national identity politics and representations of the Middle East”
“Best Events in the City” pick. “If you don’t go, the terrorists win: This witty Palestinian-American girl coolly shows us how her daily life is affected by today’s politics”
