A Play Not for an Audience

Hisham Jaber  |  Performing Arts  |  2007  |  Lebanon
A Play Not for an Audience is a experimental theatrical performance about two characters, Hisham and Rania, who are participating in a TV competition to win 5,000 Euros; the loser will be hanged. The audience directly votes to select the winner. The performance takes place on five different days, with each day addressing a different topic: abortion (anti vs. pro-life), theater (traditional vs. experimental), gender (men vs. women), and politics (Islamist movement vs. American policy). The final show displays the results.
