The Olive Tree

Presented by WitchWork Theatre Company

From a dull Dublin a parched Palestine.
In the blink of an eye.
What the fuck just happened?

A rainy day in a Dublin Tesco. A jaded supermarket employee rips a boycott Israeli goods 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.

Following its premiere at The New Theatre, Dublin, THE OLIVE TREE has toured around Ireland and to the Harare International Festival of the Arts (HIFA) in Zimbabwe. It has recently been selected to represent Ireland in the European Theatre Festival in Beirut this Winter. WitchWork Theatre Company are delighted to bring THE OLIVE TREE to the New Theatre for one night only before it sets off for Lebanon.
