The Public Theater will present the New York premiere of The Vagrant Trilogy, written by Mona Mansour and directed by Mark Wing-Davey, as part of its 2021-22 season. The Vagrant Trilogy tickets will be on sale soon.
The Vagrant Trilogy is a play told in three parts, following 19 people affected by the war over Palestinian displacement. The first part is set in 1967, when the Palestinian Wordsworth scholar Adham goes to London to deliver a lecture. War breaks out at home, and he must decide in an instant what to do. The choice will affect the rest of his life, and the following two parts of the play examine alternate realities based on his decision.
Performances will begin in April 2022. Check back for information on tickets to The Vagrant Trilogy in New York.
Mona Mansour delves into the Palestinian struggle for home and identity in The Vagrant Trilogy, a single epic story told in three parts. In 1967, Adham, a Palestinian Wordsworth scholar, goes to London with his new wife to deliver a lecture. When war breaks out at home, he must decide in an instant what to do—a choice that will affect the rest of his life. The two parts that follow explore alternate realities based on that decision. Each part in the trilogy speaks to the others, together painting a rare and moving picture of Palestinian displacement and a refugee’s life of permanent impermanence. Featuring six actors in 19 different roles, Mansour’s drama spans four decades and three generations of a family uprooted by war and politics. The Vagrant Trilogy is a sweeping new epic about the poetry and pain of losing the place called home.
