Upcoming Event: ‘Shouting Without A Listener’ – A Play Done By Migrant Workers in Lebanon

“Shouting without a listener” is a play written, directed and produced by Rahel Zegeye. It paints the struggles of Lily, a migrant domestic worker, against Lebanese society’s discrimination and the inefficiency of her embassy. 

Rahel Zegeye is an Ethiopian domestic worker in Lebanon, but that is not all she is: this is precisely her message in her previous film “Beirut”, and her current play “Shouting Without A Listener”, which delves into the personal lives of migrant workers in Lebanon. She presents migrant workers as individuals who encounter exploitation, but whose experiences reach beyond abuse – into love, moral challenges, and other life decisions.
