Four Plays by Saleh Karama Al Aameri

Four Plays by Saleh Karama Al Aameri
Under One Umbrella

Programme 1
One More Try
Directed by Maggie Hannan

‘We imagine a revolution because of the one going on inside of us’

A prisoner, about to go on trial for the murder of her husband whom she caught in adultery with her best friend, has accepted her fate and is looking forward to the death penalty.  She is confronted by her attorney who wants to free her.  But what is freedom?  Are any of us really free?

Sea Breeze  Directed by Robert Liddington

‘We've exhausted ourselves and have been unable to see anything worth mentioning.’

Four characters, confined in their story. One, the guiding force, leads them on rough and tumble journey, looking for a way out. Another is skeptical about his motives and the outcome of the enterprise. A third is fearful yet posturing and the fourth is the anchor who brings them down to a kind of reality. All of them are prisoners of their behaviour, attitudes, abilities and inabilities; they come face to face with their frailties and limitations. In doing so, they give us some insight into this predicament. But will they ever escape?

Programme 2
Evening Chat
Directed by Faisal Salah and Faisal Al Jadir

‘Patience is death’

Two estranged brothers finally meet. Their long delayed encounter is plagued by secrets of their pasts, which they will have to reveal sooner rather than later.

Directed by Zakaia Cvitanovich

‘The truth is what the present does to the past.’

A man, sitting in his cafe hears a knock at the door.  His self-imposed isolation is infiltrated by a woman: a woman who manifests into other women.  Are the women real? Or is all this happening in his imagination? Have the mistakes of his youth come back to haunt him? Or is he just a man in his twilight alone with his memories?
