What happened when a group of Palestinian lemon farmers in Gaza met a group of Syrian mint farmers in Zaatari refugee camp, Jordan? The result is a piece of remote theatre (as well as a delicious drink).
Congratulations to everyone involved in this – all the girls for learning their lines and throwing themselves into their performances so well and everyone involved in preparing all the props, and in painting the brilliant backgrounds. Special thanks to the teachers – Ala’a in Zaatari and Amal in Gaza – for devoting so much of their free time to helping the students bring the script to life as a piece of remote theatre. This is no mean feat of course when working within the constraints of a weak and unreliable internet connection in both locations. If you would like to try using this script with your own students it is available for free download here.
