The Beloved

Sold out

A ShiberHur, Young Vic production co-produced with the Bush Theatre and KVS Brussels’. Part of World Stages London

When Abraham returns home from a journey with his son, his wife is troubled by the boy’s state of mind. What took place on the mountain that day is the beginning of a lifetime of suffering for his son and the dawn of a new age for millions.

A haunting and heartbreaking twist on the story of Abraham and Isaac which reminds us that this historic tale of sacrifice began with just one family.

The Beloved marks the return to London of Palestinian theatre company ShiberHur following their acclaimed productions I Am Yusuf and This is My Brother and In the Penal Colony.
