Birthmark

view gallery

Raised on biblical stories of how his Jewish ancestors fought oppression, and marked by childhood fears about the Holocaust, playwright Stephen Orlov began to ask himself why Jews, who had founded the state of Israel to end their oppression, were now dispossessing another people that had lived there for centuries. Birthmark, produced by Teesri Duniya Theatre, delivers a compelling vision for peace and social justice, ushering us across the cultural divide of Canada’s Jewish and Palestinian diasporic communities.

Founded in 1981, Teesri Duniya Theatre’s productions reflect Canada’s multicultural, multiracial, and Indigenous reality, promoting critical thinking, community connections, and intercultural dialogue.
