The Arab-Israeli Cookbook is a drama created from the everyday realities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In a research trip to the occupied territories and Israel by the writer Robin Soans and directors Rimi Brihi and Tim Roseman, they met and interviewed people drawn from the widest possible background of culture class and creed. The one unifying feature of these meetings was that the subjects were cooking their daily meals.
...you'll see them stuck like insects in amber. Like an Ibsen play... haunted for the rest of their lives.'
Life After Scandal takes you behind the closed curtains and beyond the reach of the telephoto lenses to explore our paparazzi-infested world from the other side, as those implicated in some of the most notorious scandals of recent years talk frankly about the events which transformed their lives. This verbatim play from the writer of Talking To Terrorists and The Arab-Israeli Cookbook uses the subjects’ own words to take an entertaining, compassionate and deeply moving look at the different people, from scorned politicians to powerful PRs, expensive prostitutes to disgraced aristocrats, who find themselves caught up in the modern machinery of scandal.
Life After Scandal opened at the Hampstead Theatre in September 2007.
Hi my name is Matt Lloyd, I'm 22 and have recently moved to Dalston, Greater London. I've been a keen writer my whole life and I wanted to share a part of what I see in the world around me. By combining my experience in the hospitality industry, skills in drawing and my more recent development as an interior architect I want to... It can be lonely in the modern world and coffee shops, bars and restaurants offer me a solace through the appreciation of great interior spaces, food and drink. I took a fairly leisurely walk round the local area before I stumbled into a fairly uninspiring arched entrance way with huge factory doors painted grey. Positioned at a jaunty angle outside was an A-board with the words Arcola Theatre scrawled across it in chalk and from the inside the gentle laughter of a young woman spilled out onto the street. ” As an ex-rugby player I’d followed the story of Gareth Thomas in my teenage years so when it came to light it was showing at the Arcola that night I had to go along. After almost being late for the 7. 30 showing (I had to switch the oven off with my dinner still inside) I flew up Dalston lane and made it with two minutes to spare, still with no idea what to expect inside. The interior was an object of real intrigue, the stripped down skeletal form of the former paint factory had been maintained. A bare-bones aesthetic littered with prefabricated OSB board elements that had been positioned to crudely generate a box office, coffee shop and upstairs. Ceiling elements were visible, lighting was industrial and task driven, the box office even had the foam insulation exposed, there was a fantastic parallel with the studio built sets of old television shows, and I began to see that in its honesty... The Arcola has two performance areas called “studios” (which in my opinion presents a beautiful acknowledgement to the level of work that goes on behind the scenes in theatre i. e. when we see a play it is not merely a piece on a stage to be... ) The performance I had gone to see was in Studio 2. The makeshift seating reminded me of a sporting grandstand, exposed structural elements was again a theme, but what really struck me was the intimacy, the actors were on the same level as the...

The Arab-Israeli Cookbook is a drama created from the everyday realities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The project began when the Caird Company sent the writer Robin Soans and directors Rima Brihi and Tim Roseman to Israel, Gaza and the West Bank in 2003. There they sampled a variety of dishes in homes, restaurants, shops and cafes and met dozens of people with different cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. Each person had a story to tell and a recipe to cook. Robin Soans has constructed a verbatim play from the words he collected. Arab and Israeli voices come together to bring insight and understanding to the melting pot of Middle Eastern affairs.
Authors to be read include American writers Anna Deveare Smith, Eve Ensler, and the Tectonic Project and British writers Caryl Churchill, David Hare, Robin Soans, Lucy Kirkwood, and others. 3 hrs. sem. CW LIT
