Al-Harah trained 88 children and young people for 136 hours at the community Center.
We believe in the importance of drama and theater in creating positive change in the society and
that children and youth are the leaders of change. Therefore, we in Al-Harah Theater focus on
training different groups of children and young people who gave their group the name ‘Gangs’
and ranging according to seniority in the training as follows:
Al-Harah Gangs 1+2:
A group of young trainees aged between 21 – 26 years old. Some of them have started training
in 2007 and some have joined the theater in 2009.
The group developed a new script based on their research in Shakespeare’s plays like Macbeth
and relating it to similar themed stories from the youth’s daily lives in Palestine.
They produced a new play called "Zawaya, inspired by Macbeth"
Usually, Gangs 1+2 train on weekly basis.

Raeda Ghazaleh
Youth nowadays face lots of challenges and situations that need to make decisions that define
their future. They can either be weak and enter a world of loss or become clear in their decisions.
Since Macbeth until today, how does the play's philosophy connect to our future? How does our
decisions and choices affect our future?
