Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire)

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

An award winning play written by Mario Diament and directed by Luis Gayol.

London Airport - 1978 - one air hostess is killed and another injured in an attack by two Palestinian terrorists. One terrorist dies, accidentally killed by his own grenade, the other gets a life sentence.

Twenty two years later, Yael, the surviving air hostess returns to London looking for answers from Hasan the surviving, incarcerated terrorist.

Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire) uses a true story to look again at the enduring conflict between these two warring peoples.

At the core of the play is the dialogue between one man and one woman, both abandoned by friends and family either unwilling or unable to see across enemy lines.

Mario Diament's play - based on real events - provides space and distance, enough so an audience can witness both sides of the struggle, he then presents us with the possibility of a halt to the cycle of violence.
