Invitation: THERE IS A FIELD, Sun, Oct 17 Sunday 6:30 pm, Tricycle Theatre

16 October, 2010

Please find below details of a very special event this Sunday. There is a field is a play about the life and death of 17-year old Aseel Asleh. Aseel was wearing his Seeds of Peace t-shirt at the time Israeli forces shot him at point blank 10 years ago and he was buried in it.

“THERE IS A FIELD” play will be a small and intimate event this Sunday [see further details below]. It is aiming to attract theatre directors and producers to come, so that they can consider staging a proper production on a London stage. It has been a low-key advertising to make sure there is enough room for “industry people.”

Aseel’s mother, Jamelih Asleh, is coming from the Galilee especially for this event, as well as the playwright, Jen Marlowe, and will participate in the discussion following the reading.

The proliferation of political parties reflected the structure of the Kyrgyz society which tends to function as a conglomerate of  regional clans… Kyrgyzstan’s new parliament will be carved up by a northern and a southern coalition considering that the shadows of former Kyrgyz presidents Askar Akayev and Kurmanbek Bakiyev can be discerned behind some of the parties that won the recent elections…
