Returning to Haifa

By Ghassan Kanafani Adapted for the stage by Naomi Wallace and Ismail Khalidi

In the wake of the 1967 Six-Day War, with the borders finally open after two decades, Said and Safiyya, a Palestinian couple, return to Haifa in search of the echoes of a home they were forced to abandon during the Nakba in 1948. But are they truly ready for the encounter that awaits them upon their return?** Returning to Haifa** presents a deeply human portrait of two families, one Palestinian, and one Israeli Jewish, forced by history into an intimacy they didn’t choose.

Content Advisories: Descriptions of family separation and war violence. References of child casualties. Use of loud sounds including gunshots and artillery explosions.
