Two families in an unnamed Middle Eastern Country both have keys to the same house. What happens when they try to live in it together? The fathers play historical chess; the mothers cook together, even though one uses mint and the other dill; the lovers dare to imagine a future; and war mad children play doctor and murder. But when one girl’s dreams of flight are (literally) shot down, the betrayals and realignments which follow make us question our very definition of peace. The playwright will lead the post-show discussion.
