Molly McQueen reciting The Gaza Monologues


Listen in to this dramatic reading of Ashtar Theatre’s “The Gaza Monologues.” Written by teenagers in Gaza, the monologues are stories about life under occupation and siege. Sincere, compelling, and heartfelt, “The Gaza Monologues” reveal the human face of Palestinian youth who have virtually no outlet to the outside world. The monologues have been brought to venues around the world and was performed at the United Nations on November 29, 2010. The monologues were performed at the 101 Exhibit area at Columbia College alongside Skip Schiel’s “Windows into Gaza” photography exhibit.
