The Shroud Maker

By Ahmed Masoud

Directed By Molly Bater

Assistant Director Laetitia Valstar

Performed By Natasha Haward

Designed By Ludwig Meslet

Hajja Souad, an 80-year old Palestinian woman living on the besieged Gaza Strip, knows about business. She has survived decades of wars and oppression through making shrouds for the dead.

A compelling black comedy that delves deep into the intimate life of ordinary Palestinians to weave a highly distinctive path through Palestine’s turbulent past and present, The Shroud Maker is a one-woman comedy that weaves comic fantasy and satire with true stories told first hand to the writer, and offers a vivid portrait of Palestinian life in Gaza, underscored with gallows humour.
