Described as a single epic story told in three parts, The Vagrant Trilogy play follows Adham, a Palestinian scholar, who discovers that while he and his wife, Abir, are away in London for a lecture, war has broken out in their home country. Quickly, they are led to make a difficult decision.
Following their arrival at this crossroad, the remaining two parts of the play offer two different alternate scenarios, for each path that Adham could have taken. Although there were ultimately two differing options for Adham to choose from, the two parts weave together an interconnected story that exemplifies the overarching experience Adham and Abir have: either way they choose, they are Palestinians affected by war and a refugee crisis.
The Vagrant Trilogy was first produced as part of the 2018 Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival. The Vagrant Trilogy was previously staged at the Mosaic Theater Company in Washington, D.C. in 2018, and was met with rave reviews. The full production was originally slated to open in New York the spring of 2020. With The Vagrant Trilogy now premiering at The Public Theater, playwright Mona Mansour represents The Public’s Emerging Writers Group as alumna.
Prior to The Vagrant Trilogy’s D.C. production, the three parts of the play had never before been performed together. Six actors play 19 roles across the story, spanning four decades and three generations. Mark Wing-Davey directs the production.
