Simultaneously horrifying and overwhelming, tugging at the heartstring of a generation that can no longer trust ! “
Megan Lohne. NYTheatre Guide.

“Your identity has nothing to do with your passport. Araberlin digs deep into the fear, suspicion and violent hatred prevalent in society today !”
Elizabeth Ahlfors. TheatrePizzaz.com

Araberlin highlights critical issues about the impact of terrorism and counter-terrorism on the collective psyche of the civilized world. Very well done, in my opinion. I will continue to think about the play as I go about my work. I wish you and your colleagues continued success with this play in the future.  Jim Fitzsimmons Anti-terrorism Assistance Program (ATA) of the Diplomatic Security Service, US DOS.

I randomly wandered into this show last night knowing nothing about it. I was stunned by the quality of the script, the direction, and the acting… a brilliant piece of theater and I’m going to do all I can to spread the news about this gem!  David Sklar. Patron

Winner of 2003 SACD Award. This extremely relevant story has been dealt with masterfully by Jalila Baccar. Araberlin shows just how far the current issue of terrorism is pushing apart the two worlds, which are finding it increasingly difficult to understand one another.”

“We commissioned the first English translation of Araberlin over ten years ago,” says De Mussa. “Since then, the issue of terrorism has taken on an even greater sense of urgency. Our staging places the play within the context of the thousands of young men and women going to fight Jihad. We hope this will help shed light on terrorism’s effect on the families, friends and communities left behind.”  This production coincides with the April 2015 publication of “The Trilogy of Future Memory,” a collection of Baccar’s most recent plays, published by Martin E. Segal Theatre Center Publications (CUNY).

This translation of Araberlin was made possible with a generous grant from The French-American Fund for Contemporary Theater of FACE Foundation.
