"In Between" is a semi-autobiographical show that portrays the complexities and contradictions inherent in Palestinian-Israeli identity. On the precipice between two cultures stands Ibrahim Miari. His play recalls his childhood in Acco, memories of his Jewish and Palestinian grandmothers, of war, and of the struggle to shape and understand his own multi-faceted identity as he sits being interrogated by Israeli police and contemplates marriage to a Jewish American woman.
"In Between" is an educational, riveting and provoking show written and performed by Mr. Miari. With deft and charm, he transcends today's political distractions and reminds us of the deeper inner struggles that link all of humanity.
