I Heart Hamas: And Other Things I'm Afraid to Tell You

Written and Performed by Jennifer Jajeh
Directed by W. Kamau Bell

With the current ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, the threat of global terrorism, and the never-ending negotiations and hostilities between Israelis and Palestinians, its hard not to feel overwhelmed by all of the bad international news. Thats exactly how Jennifer Jajeh feels. And to make matters worse, Jennifer is Palestinian. Well, Palestinian American. Or more precisely: a single, Christian, first generation, Palestinian American woman who chooses to return to her parents hometown of Ramallah at the start of the Second Intifada.

Join her on American and Palestinian soil on auditions, bad dates, and across military checkpoints as she navigates the thorny terrain around Palestinian identity. Weaving together humor, slides, pop culture references and live theatre, Jajeh explores how she becomes Palestinian-ized, then politicized and eventually radicalized in a fresh, often funny, searingly honest way.

"I Heart Hamas: And Other Things Im Afraid To Tell You", recognized by NYTheatre.com as "a fascinating look into a world we dont often see or hear about", made its world premiere in 2008 as a part of New York International Fringe Festival.  Following strong media praise and audience reception, the play was a smash-hit in San Francisco where it ran for 12 weeks in Fall 2009, continuing onto Minneapolis and Chicago for 6 weeks in Spring 2010.

Every Friday and Saturday at 8pm at Theatre Asylum
Co-Sponsored by the Levantine Cultural Center
