‘She’s speaking to me. The olive tree.
Something tells me we’re not in Dublin anymore.’
A rainy day in Dublin. A jaded supermarket employee rips a boycott sticker off a bottle of olive oil. And the Palestinian olive tree of history comes to life before her…
A magic realist journey into the stories and struggles of Palestine, past, present and future.
A new play written and performed by Katie O’Kelly (Stage UK nominee for Best Solo Performer, Edinburgh Fringe 2012).
Directed by Davey Kelleher.
“An excellent example of magical realism on stage -****1/2”
-- The Reviews Hub
“This is a story told both with magic and emotional realness”.
-- Pure M Magazine
“O’Kelly performs all the roles with a clean, clear, and sharp wit. Her energy from start to finish is contagious, and the writing is detailed and natural.”
“The direction, by Davey Kelleher, is meticulously attentive and ensures that the show has grace and stamina.”
“Despite the heaviness of the material, O’Kelly imbues the script with a small but potent sense of hope.”
