A Dramatic Legend

The legend tells the story of a father waiting for his son who ran away years ago to return back.  The father lives in the hope of his son’s return every day and involves everyone around him in a state of waiting; his disabled son and the neighbor’s daughter, who devoted her life to caring for her blind brother, who is promised to marry his absent son when he returns.

One day a strong storm blows over the town, the sea rages and the waiting falls.

The heroes of this dramatic legend are ordinary people through which Mu’taz Abu Saleh, Bashar Murkus and the team of the play dismantle the myth of waiting.
