Our House 


Our house is a one act play written by Jessica Damouni. 

Our House follows Julia, who in a desperate attempt to understand her identity, visits Lebanon for the first time. Her last night in town is spent with her cousin Hawa, a Beirut local who has had enough of listening to Julia's infatuation with the country. The two finally begin to connect until an idea about revisiting the past is revealed. Our House is a look at the complex dynamics of families separated by war, identity and intergenerational trauma.
