2012 Shakespeare For A New World: The Palestinian Voice


Manhattan Shakes is going to Palestine!

Manhattan Shakes will be on hiatus for the 2012 season so we can put all of our energy and resources into this very exciting project. We are sending 2 teaching artists and a documentary film director to Palestine to work with the students at the Drama Academy Ramallah and The Freedom Theatre in the Jenin refugee camp. We will be creating original devised theatre pieces that will be performed for the public based on Shakespeare’s Sonnets, rigorous movement training, and Palestinian youth songs.

We are very excited and honored to be a part of this new venture into creating bridges between culturally diverse communities using Shakespeare and theatre.

Our ambitious projects need ambitious supporters. You help us bring vibrant, educational theatre to life. Your tax-deductible gift will make all the difference. Make your secure online donation today!


Thank you so much for your interest in Manhattan Shakespeare Project! We look forward to seeing you at the theatre when we return in 2013 with our regular season (Announcement coming soon!).
