The Keepers of Infinite Space by Omar El-Khairy with contributions from Caroline Rooney
Directed by Zoe Lafferty
22nd January – 16th February 2014. Park Theatre.
“You’ve got to learn when to throw your punches – when they least expect it. There’s no use flailing in the dark. This is where battles are raged – and wars won.”
Saeed is a bookseller in Nablus. His father Khalil is a property developer. They’re just an ordinary family, quietly building a new Palestine. Until one day Saeed is arrested and thrown into gaol. As his future disappears, Saeed finds that the answer to his problems may lie in the past, and in the secrets his father has kept from him…
A hard-hitting examination of the Israeli prison system, in which up to 40% of the Palestinian male population have been imprisoned, often without charge, The Keepers of Infinite Space explores the fraught legacy of this system for the people of Palestine.
Written by Omar El-Khairy, the son of a refugee Palestinian family, and directed by Zoe Lafferty, Associate Director of the acclaimed Freedom Theatre Palestine.
