Play: Two Birds One Stone

Wednesday, May 3 - Saturday, May 13

| $15

Two Birds One Stone is a fictionalized documentary play

presented as part of Why Not Theatre’s RISER Project

Rimah Jabr and Natasha Greenblatt meet in Toronto. Rimah was born a Palestinian Muslim. Natasha was born a Jewish Canadian. This is probably just an ordinary meeting between two women. But have they seen each other before? And do they both have a connection to the same house in Israel? Two Birds One Stone is a Fictional Documentary that investigates two women’s histories and the forces that push them through time and across continents to find each other. What is the truth about the stories we tell, and what do we wish would become fiction?

Tickets: $15 at BMO Incubator for Live Arts (1115 Queen Street West)
