Welcome to Ramallah opens tonight, Friday, 7 Sept 2012

The movie "My Neighborhood" (re: Palestinian family forced out of their home as seen through the eyes of a young boy) opened in San Francisco last week.  We hear daily reports of the Israeli-Palestinian border issues, some good, some bad.  A solution may be years away, but the conversation is front and center.  The play "Welcome to Ramallah" is therefore timely in discussing this key international topic.  The playwrights Sonja Linden and Adah Kay have tackled this tough conversation with compassion, love and understanding.  Take a moment to see this intelligent, gripping play.

Here are the actors hard at work.
