The Palestinian National Theatre – El Hakawati – is eager to enrich the Palestinian theatre production. In light of that, it prepares, executes, and presents numerous theatrical productions that target different groups annually, with no less than five theatrical plays per year.
The presented works by the theatre are a mixture of improvisations, writing of new plays, and adopting the works of Arab and Palestinian writers, in addition to preparing and translating international theatrical shows. In most cases, the core of the theatre’s productions is centered on social issues and political concerns. They, nonetheless, focus on artistic works from contemporary sources, traditional culture, and Arab and Palestinian literature.
