Due to unforeseen circumstances, Loose Change Productions, will be postponing the World Premiere production of The Mulberry Tree at La MaMa ETC, which had been scheduled to run February 11th – 25th. We anticipate that we will be able to present the production in the near future.  We look forward to sharing that news with you.

LaMaMa presents a Loose Change Production in association with Sari Sari Women Of Color Arts Coup

As 1948 approaches, a Palestinian boy and his beloved neighbor, the village Rabbi, struggle to maintain their friendship in a village of Jews and Palestinians trying to go about life as usual—until it becomes impossible.

An achingly human story, The Mulberry Tree is a play about Palestine’s past, and a heartbroken but hopeful ode to its future.

Written by longtime collaborators Hanna Eady (born in Palestine) and Edward Mast (born in California), this story shows the painful price of loyalty and betrayal, while honoring the power of memory.
