I Heart Hamas: And Other Things I’m Afraid to Tell You returns to the Bay Area!
Jennifer is Palestinian. Well, Palestinian American. Or more precisely: a single, Catholic, first generation, Palestinian American woman who chooses to return to her parents’ hometown of Ramallah at the start of the Second Intifada.
Actress and writer Jennifer Jajeh, with award winning director W. Kamau Bell, present 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.
I Heart Hamas: And Other Things I’m Afraid to Tell You held its world premiere at New York’s Fringe Festival before continuing with a 12-week sold out run in San Francisco, and 2-week sold out run Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following its Chicago premiere, the show will continue to Los Angeles in the summer/fall of 2010.
