Relevant, Thought-provoking, Slow, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if An interesting story about Palestinian people. The Hope's and dreams they have and the challenges they face.

Don't see it if Sometimes was very difficult to both hear and understand these actors especially upstage. It could also be slow at times.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Sad, Slow, Quirky

See it if Gives a voice to occupied people feeling that their aspirations for a better future are like trying to fly to the moon. Tender, forlorn.

Don't see it if Contrived engineering scenes. Jerky transitions. Predictable love triangle w/daughter's 2 suitors. Internet cliche. Slow & preachy in spots.

"While the chaos is filled with necessary, it's the setting of the play that makes it transcend Yusuf's dream…But this rising action (not to mention Natour's show-stealing performance) is engaging enough without the extra storylines about a love triangle."

Score: 85%. "'GREY ROCK' at The Public's Under the Radar festival by lead Palestinian Playwright, Amir Nizar Zuabi's is one hundred percent heart and dream. A poetic rally cry for anyone feeling uninspired, beaten down, or in need of a reminder of the power of dreaming."
