Theatre director Caroline Hatem has adapted Anna Seghers’ TRANSIT to the present context of displacement and emigration.

Mirroring the situation in France in 1940, the play is set in Lebanon, where Syrians and Lebanese are impatiently waiting for visas or for occasions to flee, and where the narrator becomes a Syrian emigrant we follow in Tripoli’s streets and cafés.

TRANSIT TRIPOLI pays tribute to Seghers’ unique and lively voice, and its appeal to one’s inner space and freedom, ballads and gaze, while subjected to the implacability of History.

Supported by thrilling original and live music by Rabih Gebeile, Lebanese actor Josef Akiki is performing many roles, genders, accents, nationalities in this incisive, smart, humorous text where drama underlies every encounter, every step in the journey, and where love
comes to save the day.
