“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.
Ticket price: 10,000 LL – All proceeds will go to improve healthcare for migrant workers in Lebanon via initiatives organized by Rahel Zegeye and the Migrant Workers Task Force.
Do you want to get a first-hand perspective on the lives of migrant domestic workers in Lebanon? Do you want to see a play written and produced by members of this community? Join and support these brave individuals on January 20th at 4PM in the theater of Near East School of Theology (Hamra, on the connection between Jeanne d’Arc street and Souraty)
Written and produced by: Rahel Zegeye
