Traffic security, early marriage and the importance of education are topics discussed in a play by Youth & Children Dreams Charitable Society in Hebron.

Throughout the months of September, October and November 2010, the play is put up in schools, universities and public places in the Old City of Hebron, such as Bab Al-Baladiyye and Souq Al-Dajaj. All in all, about 20 shows have been held.

—Little by little, we are trying to change people’s attitudes on sensitive issues. In fact, this includes acting, considering that men dressed up as women on stage would have been impossible just a few years ago in a conservative society as Hebron, says Abdul Moghni Al-Jaabari, Chairman of the board of directors of Youth & Children Dreams Charitable Society (YCDS).

The TIPH is supporting the theatre performances as a way of contributing to the social development and well-being of Palestinians.

—Theatre is an opportunity for the viewers to temporarily escape from their daily life and also a way to have a good time, says Kamil A. Azhar, Community Relations Officer in the TIPH.
