About Al Harah Theatre


Al-Harah Theater, established in 2005, is a non-profit organization based in Beit Jala, Bethlehem.

Al Harah Theater aims to produce theater that is well-crafted yet moving, challenging yet accessible and, essential, honest. We believe that theater has the potential to change the lives of those who make it and those who watch it.

Al- Harah Theatre is committed to principles of plurality and multiculturalism. Through producing and promoting theater arts in Palestine, we are partaking in building and maintaining a civil society that emphasizes human rights, democracy and freedom of expression as key components for a dynamic society.

Al- Harah aims to bring compelling stories , in one of the most uncensored spaces, to audiences throughout Palestine, the Arab World and beyond, through producing and distributing theater performances on high artistic levels, and our educational training programs which create new theatre practitioners who believe that theatre has a strong potential to implement positive change.

Al Harah theater won many prizes in the past years.
