About The Play:
There, in the houses, schools, neighborhoods, streets and markets, many similar events take place...These events are narrated by people who were truly affected by them… They tell their stories and stop on each event…They tried to describe their reality through stories from their schools, classes, houses, relatives and even from markets…They laugh, scream,and get angry. They are very proud to share their stories and express their feelings, dreams and thoughts. They represent each one of us.
Many questions were raised and answered, but many others still need answers.
