Our Faculty. Student Research. A Palestinian woman Lameece Issaq visits, and then a strange year-old self-styled "architect" called Shlomo Waleed F. Zuaiter arrives.

Issaq's grieving, noble mother is affecting. Set in a clinic, there's a long prologue involving an amusing janitor Moayed before the play finds its stride: a conflict between Mourid and a nurse, Tanya Langer Natalie Gold , who may have been the recipient of the lungs of Mourid's son.
