About

Written by Jalila Bakar
Directed by Fadhel Jaibi
 
Tunisia's Familia Productions brings Khamsoun (meaning 50 in Arabic), a play written by Jalila Bakar and directed by Fadhel Jaibi. The work spans 50 years in Tunisia's history--from the country's independence up until 2006. It traces the story of Amal, the daughter of two leftist militants who is arrested following the suicide bombing of her teacher friend in the courtyard of the school. There are two resulting investigations after the bombing--one by the police and the other by Amal's mother, who seeks to understand the ideological shift in the country--awakening demons from the past. Khamsoun celebrates Tunisia's independence while also addressing the social challenges that Tunisia has faced. Performed in Arabic with English surtitles.
