Our House is Nicer (Gaza 2007)


About the Play
“Our House is Nicer” introduces us to 5 sad old ladies! How they got to this house is part of their story. How they want to live is another part. Why sit around and wait? Let’s live like everyone else. Let’s eat ice-cream. Let’s play. Let’s change ourselves. Sometimes, going back and thinking from new can be a good thing. What do you think?
