The Vagrant Trilogy


LuEsther Hall
March 17 - April 26, 2020

New York Premiere
Written by Mona Mansour
Directed by Mark Wing-Davey

Commissioned by The Public Theater

Mona Mansour, award-winning playwright and alum of The Public’s Emerging Writer’s Group, 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 nineteen different roles, Mansour’s drama spans four decades and three generations of a family uprooted by war and politics. Obie Award winner and Drama Desk Award nominee Mark Wing-Davey directs this sweeping new epic about the poetry and pain of losing the place called home.
