Mona Mansour, ‘The Hour of Feeling’
September 29, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In 1967, as the map of the Middle East is about to be redrawn, Adham, a promising young Palestinian scholar specializing in English poetry, sets off to London with his new wife Abir to deliver a potentially career-changing lecture on Wordsworth. He’s eager to make a splash and leave his homeland behind, while she still feels bound to fulfill her responsibilities to family and tradition. When violence erupts back home, the young couple’s marriage is seriously tested, and Adham struggles to reconcile his ambitions with the pull of family and home.
This is a staged reading of the script The Hour of Feeling, written and performed by Mona Mansour.
