Black Lives Matter Hudson Valley and DonkeySaddle Productions PRESENT: There Is A Field, a play about a young Palestinian teenage boy who is shot to death by an Israeli Police Officer, based on the true story of the death of 17 year old Aseel Asleh in October 2000, written and produced by Jen Marlowe. Based on interviews and primary sources collected over fourteen years, the documentary-style play offers a uniquely personal lens for understanding inequality as the root of state violence and impunity.
This will be a reading of the play by local community members working in conjunction with DonkeySaddle Productions.
