The Hour of Feeling

It’s 1967 and the map of the Middle East is about to change drastically. Fueled by a love of English Romantic poetry, Adham journeys from Palestine to London with his new wife, Abir, to deliver a career-defining lecture. As the young couple’s marriage is tested, Adham struggles to reconcile his ambitions with the pull of family and home. But what if seizing the moment means letting go of everything he knows?

    This is the best play I've read in months. The dialogue is crisp. The characters are alive. The intersections between life and literature call to mind W;t, and are just as effective.
