In March 2020, the Israeli army invaded the West bank of Ramallah, putting its enture population under virtual house arrest. Adapted by leading Scottish playwright David Greig from the diaries of Raja Shehadeh, a Palestinian poet, writer, lawyer and human rights acticist, this affecting and effective play tells what happens when the world shrinks and shows the extraordinary power of resistance that comes from ordinary people determined to get on with thier lives udner appalling circumstances. Directed with a delicacy of touch by the Traverse Theatre's Artistsic Director, Philip Howard, in his New York debut. WHEN THE BULBUL STOPPED SINGING is a heartfelt plea for humanity and one of the most important political plays of the year.
