SUITCASE / ADRENALINE are two one-act shows that bridge together the multidimensional experiences of Syrian refugees, – directed by Majdi Bou-Matar, and starring playwright Ahmad Meree and actress Nada Abusaleh – playing January 16 to February 1, 2020 at the Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace Theatre.
SUITCASE follows the year-long response to the playwright’s real life experiences as an artist immigrating from Syria.
ADRENALINE tells the story of Jaber, a Syrian man spending his first New Year’s Eve in Canada. The fireworks and loud cheers cause Jaber to recall his experiences the year prior, when he spent the holiday surrounded by war-torn explosions and commotion.
Playwright Ahmad Meree joined Mark Wigmore on The Oasis.
